A recent proposing from an NCEA working group has suggested incorporating Mātauranga Māori into the high school science curriculum. The proposal has received a considerable amount of backlash, including from a number of University of Auckland academics.

Noah Ferguson-Dudding spoke to National MP Christopher Luxon to discuss why he has criticised parts of the plan. He also spoke to Dr Lucy Stewart, from the New Zealand Association of Scientists, to discuss how Mātauranga Māori interacts with Western science.
