In 1987, one of the recommendations of the Tomorrow's Schools' Picot Report, a major education reform affecting all New Zealand schools, recommended to the government that Maori communities be able to establish and govern their own schools. Therefore, the 1989 Education Act was amended to include section 155 which provides for the minister of education to designate a state school as a Kura Kaupapa Maori by notice in the New Zealand Gazette. Although the Act was amended, many Kura communities were dissatisfied because the amendment did not adequately define the unique character of a Kura Kaupapa Maori....

Kura Kaupapa Maori receive additional funding to help them develop and maintain their Te Reo Maori immersion environment. An immersion leveling system is the mechanism used to calculate the funding.

It is common for teachers to not speak any English to their children at Kura....
