Summary

"Indigenous students should be treated not as incommensurately different but like all other students who are required to become competent in the national curriculum, argues Professor Marcia Langton AM. Past attempts to improve Indigenous education have involved constant experimentation and ‘bolt-on programs’ that have not worked. Explicit instruction and partnerships between Indigenous communities and high-performing schools are helping improve Indigenous education outcomes and should be adopted more widely" --Publisher.
