Potential factors influencing Indigenous education participation and achievement

28 Nov 2012
Description

The focus of this paper is on the factors, other than access, that influence the decision for Indigenous Australians to participate in education.
The authors use a number of datasets to investigate 11 research questions relating to early childhood and post-school education participation and achievement. Overall, constraints on education participation and achievement appear at the time of pre-school education and have long-lasting effects.
In order to improve the educational outcomes of Indigenous Australians, policy should focus on the earlier years of schooling. This research was funded through the NCVER Fellowship Program.
