This documentary tracks the students and staff of Hastings Boys High School over one year to get a glimpse of real life Māori education success stories.
Statistically Māori boys are three times more likely to leave school with no formal qualifications than non-Maori boys.
But can a school, that many would consider a throwback to more conservative times, really be embraced by young Māori men in 2013? Can they make a difference to these boys so they will not be a part of the disappointing statistics of tomorrow?
Educating Tama is the heartfelt, intimate and emotional journey of four boys as they navigate the waters of their own education.
