Context for this assessment task
Statistics show that despite substantial government spending on Indigenous education, there are still serious differences in the educational outcomes achieved by Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians (Gray & Beresford, 2008). Many writers claim that policies that aim to close this gap for Australian Indigenous students will only achieve successful educational outcomes if schools and teachers acknowledge and address the impact that the past has had on the present for these students (Gray & Beresford, 2008; Vass, 2012; Ford, 2012).
