The InZone Education Foundation was created to provide Māori and Pacific Island secondary school students with the opportunity to access some of New Zealand’s highest performing state/integrated schools, something they would otherwise not have been able to do without living in the right school zone. Many of New Zealand’s best performing state secondary schools are positioned in some of the most unaffordable areas. This is no coincidence. As zoning restrictions tightened, the demand for housing in these areas escalated. Māori and Pacific Island families appear to be the most affected by these changes. Yet it is Māori and Pacific Island students that too often fall into the lowest achieving academic ranks for school leavers.
