Stone, Cathy; King, Sharron; Ronan, Chris – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2022

Oliver, Rhonda; Exell, Mike – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2019
Aboriginal school students, especially those living in rural and remote areas, continue to achieve below the national standard in oral language, literacy and numeracy.

The North West of Tasmania is a rural and regional community, which has been a focus for such interventions due to its relatively low rates of retention to Year 12 and low tertiary participation rates. This paper…
