Survey: Most New Zealanders want Te Reo Maori to be compulsory learning???

Attitudes towards te reo Māori are changing, and most New Zealanders want Māori language to be compulsory learning in schools, according to a new survey.

On further investigation I note that: The pop-up survey was completed by 5,391 visitors to the Te Aka Māori-English Dictionary online. Conducted in partnership with the Māori Language Commission, the survey sought to gather data on how the online dictionary is used, the language proficiency of users and attitudes towards te reo Māori.

Could be a little bias I suspect. I don’t have a view either way but draw your own conclusions on the validity of this survey and whether or not the headline is misleading.
