Bangarr, Michelle – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2022
Over recent years a lot of attention has been given to education for First Nations students living in remote communities. The quest for improved outcomes, better attendance, retention and year 12 completions disguises other perhaps more important issues. During the 1970s and 1980s the homeland movement 'return to Country' created opportunities for…

Yang, Liuning – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2022
Across China, the household registration (hukou) policy has restricted the school admission of rural-urban migrant children in urban areas. In 2017, the Nanjing government issued the "Tenants Have the Same Right as Householders" (THSRH) policy to allow tenants in urban areas access to public-school resources. However, what the migrant…

This paper addresses educational inequality of access to higher education for Scottish rural communities. Inequality results from the sole use of a national socio-economic index in order to meet a key milestone for higher education goal.

Guenther, John; Osborne, Sam – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2020
The term 'choice-less choice' in education arises from the ethical dilemma where parents are left with no option other than one they do not want to choose. In this article, we draw particularly from David Mander's (2012) use of the term, where he applied it to First Nations students from Western Australia. In Australia, choice-less choice applies…

As one of China's 55 officially recognized minority groups, many of whom reside in rural areas, Uyghurs make an…
