The Characteristics of, and Motivations for, Indigenous Student Mobility: Examples from Urban and Regional Queensland, Australia
Navin, Fiona; Hill, Angela; Doyle, Tanya
International Journal of Educational Research, v54 p21-30 2012
Using the notion that research should "enlighten" policy responses, this paper considers the complex locational factors that affect and underlie patterns of Indigenous student mobility in Queensland, Australia. The paper presents data, captured through an action research project, to explore mobility "in and through" two environments. In so doing, it argues that the complexity of local sites and experiences, and distinct "push-pull" factors in remote, regional and urban settings, are critical considerations when developing a "policy package" in response to Indigenous student mobility. In this regard, more effective use and analysis of administrative data are required. (Contains 2 figures and 8 tables.)
