The NCEA Level 1 History paper asks students to write as if they were a 1980 National MP “not sympathetic to Maori concerns”.
One can’t be a National MP who has a different view on how best to achieve positive outcomes for Maori, you have to be portrayed as basically not caring a jot.
As outraegous as the question is, the worst offence is that NZQA is defending it. Sickening.
Here’s my question for NCEA History Level 2 “Please write as a Labour MP who is indifferent to the victims of crime”. One would never see that of course.
