Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25, No. 7. 1962.


Articles appearing in Salient V and VI have protested, one emotionally, the other dispassionately, against the concept of the Maori Education Foundation.

This Foundation, as such, has no intention of usurping Governmental policy for Maori Education. Rather, the Foundation seeks to provide the means for Maoris generally to take advantage of educational opportunities already available to them in the way of Post Primary education followed by Scholarships, Bursaries and the like.

The Foundation is the logical outcome of years of endeavour by Maori and Pakeha leaders. They have been concerned with what, by European standards and conditions, is a regrettable tendency on the part of the majority of Maoris a lack of ambition for higher learning, higher status and higher class.
