Smith writes a comprehensive critique of the Taha Māori component in the New Zealand education curriculum and contends that Taha Māori ‘is primarily addressed to the needs and interests of the dominant Pakeha society…that Taha Māori only addresses Māori needs and interests indirectly....[and] that Taha Māori is assisting the acculturation of Māori culture.’

Nga Kete Waananga...Readers in Māori Education: "Māori Perspectives of Taha Māori". Ed. Graham Smith. [Auckland, N.Z.]: Auckland College of Education, 1986.
The first volume in a series of readers ‘reflecting Māori opinions in regard to TAHA MāORI Ideology and Philosophy...’. This publication contains seven papers by Ranginui Walker, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Wally Penetito, Graham Smith and Lorraine Tarrant, and Graham Smith writes in his Introduction that the papers ‘are not intended to be a practical guide to TAHA MāORI implementation, rather they are more concerned with discussing the ideological and philosophical bases of TAHA MāORI; all educators will have had to consider carefully many of the issues raised by these papers before any meaningful beginning can be made in the implementation of TAHA MāORI into schools.’
Nga Kete Waananga...Readers in Māori Education: "Akonga Māori: Māori Pedagogy and Learning..." Comp. Graham H. Smith. Auckland, N.Z.: Māori Studies Dept.; Auckland College of Education, 1986.
A second reader in the Kete Waananga series containing thirteen papers by various authors on the theme of Akonga Māori [Māori learning and teaching]. Smith writes in his Introduction that the papers should ‘stimulate serious consideration of present teaching and learning methodologies used in New Zealand schooling, not only in respect of benefiting Māori pupils but also in regard to all New Zealand pupils as we move toward evolving our own unique New Zealand methodologies in Education.’

"The Picot Report: A Cocktail for a Cultural and Social Catastrophe." PPTA Journal Term 3 (1988): 17-18.
A critique of the Picot Report in which Smith notes the key areas the Picot Taskforce failed to address, such as ‘the link between the educational crisis faced by Māori recipients within State Education and inhibitive educational administrative structures’, its failure ‘to institute structural reforms to more fairly and urgently respond to the crises faced by Māori within education, particularly issues related to language and cultural aspirations’, and the replication in the Report of ‘the inhibiting features of past policy initiatives’. Smith lists eleven ‘past errors’ of former education policy initiatives which the Picot Report emulates and he observes that the Report ‘perpetuates the "status quo" situation; the continued subordination of Māori language and cultural interests to those of dominant Pakeha interest, [and] the maintenance of existing educational disadvantage suffered by disproportionate numbers of Māori within all levels of education.’ He adds that at ‘a second level of influence the Report moves beyond mere indifference to Māori language and culture, toward an open attack upon the validity and legitimacy of Māori language.’

"Reform and Māori Educational Crisis: A Grand Illusion..." Proceedings of Post Primary Teachers Association Curriculum Conference, Christchurch, N.Z., 1991. Ed. Phillip Capper. Christchurch, N.Z.: New Zealand Post Primary Teachers Association, May 1991. 32-40. Rpt. as Reform and Māori Educational Crisis: A Grand Illusion. Monograph No. 3 Auckland, N.Z.: University of Auckland, Dec. 1991.
Smith writes in his Abstract that ‘[t]his monograph argues that there is very little contained within recent policy reforms which will significantly alter the educational experiences of Māori pupils.’ In light of the ‘poor achievement levels’ of Māori children Smith assesses the success of intervention methods propounded by Te Kohanga Reo and Kura Kaupapa Māori and their possible application in influencing policy development in other schools. This paper was the keynote address at the Post Primary Teachers Association Curriculum Conference in Christchurch, N.Z. in May 1991. This is a slightly expanded version of Smith’s monograph Tomorrow’s Schools and the Development of Māori Education presented at the Second Educational Policy Conference hosted by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research in Wellington, N.Z. in August, 1990.
"In Absentia: Māori Education Policy and Reform." Te Tari Rangahau o Te Matauranga Māori/Research Unit for Māori Education. Monograph 4. Auckland, N.Z.: U of Auckland. Dec. 1991.
Smith writes that this monograph ‘argues that Māori have been excluded from meaningful educational policy development and reform and that this exclusion has had a disastrous impact on Māori children and their schooling outcomes. This exclusion while it is most overt at a cultural level in terms of the loss of Māori language, knowledge and culture, but it also has a more fundamental effect. This deeper meaning relates to the continued socio-economic marginalisation of Māori people in wider society. In this sense this paper attempts to bring both the cultural and the structural influences together in an attempt to form a coherent explanation. The author argues that cultural oppression is inextricably linked with the economic exploitation of Māori people and that education and schooling contribute to and sustain these. Any solution or intervention for Māori in schooling must address both of these problem areas.’ This is based on Smith’s paper presented at the Policy For Our Times Conference held at Massey University in July 1991.
"Tomorrow’s Schools and the Development of Māori Education." Te Tari Rangahau o Te Matauranga/Māori Research Unit for Māori Education. Monograph 5. Auckland, N.Z.: U of Auckland. Dec. 1991.
Smith writes that ‘[t]his monograph argues that educational reforms initiated by Māori people themselves will have a greater and more positive impact on Māori education and schooling crisis than the Tomorrow’s Schools reforms.... This paper seeks to discover what the key intervention elements contained in these Māori schooling initiatives are and how might they be used to transform the experiences of Māori pupils in state schooling generally.’ This paper was presented at the Second Educational Policy Conference convened by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research in Wellington in August 1990.
