Contesting the Curriculum in the Schooling of Indigenous Children in Australia and the United States: From Eurocentrism to Culturally Powerful Pedagogies.
Hickling-Hudson, Anne; Ahlquist, Roberta
Comparative Education Review, v47 n1 p64-89 Feb 2003
Case studies of Eurocentric versus culturally relevant educational practices with Indigenous students were carried out in four Australian and U.S. schools that were mainstream or community-controlled schools. Comparisons focus on colonial versus postcolonial perspectives on curriculum content, the dilemma of unsuitable high-stakes assessments linked to monocultural mainstream standards, the teaching of Indigenous languages and cultures, and needs for teacher education.
