The needs of Indigenous students and their communities

Aboriginal people (Australia) First Peoples students Australia

In accepting our responsibility to deal with the fundamental injustices still apparent among Indigenous students and their communities we must continue our campaigns aimed at achieving an increase in government effort, resources and the promotion of educational opportunities. While there are successful programs being implemented in some places, it must be acknowledged that these successes are usually isolated, short lived and do not have a wider positive impact on the overall system.

This brief paper outlines the key areas for action to improve the outcomes for Indigenous students and their communities.
