Australian Directions in Indigenous Education 2005–2008
Despite some improvement in recent years, Indigenous students are still far from achieving educational equity with their non-Indigenous counterparts. Demographic pressures mean urgent action is needed to better engage Indigenous students and their communities in formal education. The Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs has agreed to a number of recommendations to improve Indigenous outcomes from early childhood through to post-compulsory education, including strategies for building teaching and school leadership capacity and community partnerships.
