dc.description.abstract At different times and in various ways governments have used education as a means to institute preferred forms of racial relations. In New Zealand, education has been used since colonization as a tool to develop certain types of Maori-Pakeha interaction. The intermingling of the two - racial relations and Maori education - forms the backdrop to this work. This thesis focusses on issues of Maori education and racial relations. More specifically, it concentrates on assumptions of racial relations as revealed in government-commissioned reports on, or pertaining to, Maori education, and examines these assumptions within the context of five models of Maori political development - assimilation, integration, multiculturalism, biculturalism and Maori nationalism. The eight reports which are examined in the thesis are the Report on the Department of Maori Affairs (1961), Report of the Commission for Education (1962), Report of the National Advisory Committee on Maori Education (1970), Directions for Educational Development (1975), He Huarahi: Report of the National Advisory committee on Maori Education (1980), Government Management: Brief to the Incoming Government, Volume II (1987), The Curriculum Review: Report of the Committee to Review the Curriculum for Schools (1987), and Administering for excellence: Effective Administration in Education (1988). In addition to the reports-models analysis, print media reaction to the reports (and, indirectly, the models) is also surveyed. This was done on the basis of a sampling of four metropolitan newspapers - the New Zealand Herald, Auckland Star, the Evening Post, and the Press - and an examination of contemporary journal articles. en
