The findings of the NZ Teachers Council report on the conduct of Louisa Mutu have been released with the principal of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Whangaroa being censured and struck off the teaching registry. 

In the report's findings, Mutu admitted serious misconduct, including inappropriate Facebook conversations with a 15-year-old student, and adopting an aunt or mother-like figure instead of retaining a pupil-teacher relationship.

In a statement recently released, the school said it was relieved that this case has finally been made public and the community and parents can finally know what happened last year.
