government sponsored schools[edit]

Just removed this recent addition to the intro:

"At the beginning of the 20th century, it looked like Te Reo as well as other aspects of Māori culture would disappear. In the 1980s however, government sponsored schools taught Te Reo, educating those of European descent as well as Māori."

While not wildy wrong, it doesn't read well, especially the second sentence seems an odd way to describe Kōhanga Reo and Kura Kaupapa Māori. Snori (talk) 10:25, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Official status[edit]

English is a de facto official language. The paragraph headed Official status could be understood as stating that NZ is bilingual in Maori and NZ Sign Language. Also, link 15 is broken. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:03, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
