Educational Outcomes of Children on Guardianship or Custody Orders: A Pilot Study, Stage 2. Child Welfare Series. Number 49
Hunter, Nicole; Topfer, Alex
Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
This report presents a snapshot of the academic performance of children on guardianship/custody orders from 2003 to 2006, and changes in their performance over this period. This concludes a two-stage pilot study, the first of its kind in Australia. A considerable proportion of children on guardianship/custody orders are not meeting the national benchmarks for reading and numeracy (ranging from 4% to 68% across states and years), and Indigenous children within this group are particularly disadvantaged. A glossary is included. Appendices are: (1) Methods; and (2) Detailed tables and figures. (Contains 29 tables, 11 figures, and 4 boxes.) [For the first study, "Educational Outcomes of Children on Guardianship or Custody Orders: A Pilot Study. Child Welfare Series. Number 42," see ED512577.]
