From next year every student from years 1–10 will be taught New Zealand history in schools.  

The Prime Minister today announced the new curriculums that would ensure a greater understanding of Aotearoa and national identity. 

The new curriculum will focus on areas such as refugees, Pacific peoples, Chinese histories and colonisation. 

Act Party leader David Seymour has called it divisive and all about colonisation. 

Graeme Ball, the chair of the NZ History Teachers Association is calling it the right balance. 

David Seymour and Graeme Ball joined Andrew Dickens.
