Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Education Minister Chris Hipkins announced plans to make the teaching of New Zealand history compulsory in schools this morning. Ardern says this will "reset a national framework so all learners and ākonga are aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they have influenced and shaped the nation.” 

Deb spoke to Education Minister Chris Hipkins about the planned changes, who started by explaining how New Zealand history is currently approached in schools.
