Indigenous school attendance: creating expectations that are ‘really high’ and ‘highly real’

Policy Online carries a link (17.3.16) to an Australian Council for Educational Research report examining factors impacting on school attendance in Indigenous communities.

'Issue 4 of ACER's Policy Insights series commences with a synthesis of publicly available data on school attendance by Indigenous Australians, highlighting areas of major risk. It explores Australian and international literature to develop an understanding of the risk factors and protective factors involved in strengthening school attendance. The paper then articulates a number of design principles to underpin future investment and intervention policies, and concludes with proposed guideposts which could be considered by policy-makers going forward.'
