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…

Wallin, Dawn; Tunison, Scott – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2022
Canada's colonial relationship to First Peoples was predicated on the imposition of church-run residential schools, systemic racism, and chronic underfunding of education on reserve (Dart, 2019). As a result, the relationship between Indigenous learners, families and the school system is fraught with mistrust, scepticism regarding the purposes of…

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…

Finnan, Christine – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2020
Residential schools for indigenous students are rarely conceptualised as "castles of hope," but because of the difficulty of providing quality education in rural areas, they remain an option, or a necessity, for many indigenous students. Although most contemporary residential schools differ from those that purposefully sought to…
