Capeness, Ros – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2015

This suite of papers makes a valuable contribution to better understanding the issues confronting the current state of…

This paper seeks to develop a case for (re)thinking education and sustainability with specific reference to rural Australia.

Corbett, Michael – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2015
In this piece I raise a number of rural education issues that I think might be productively engaged through a sociological lens. The paper has developed from notes on 'international trends in rural education' for a pre conference workshop of AARE in December of 2014. My general conclusion is that the field of rural education, at least as it exists…

Guenther, John; Halsey, John; Osborne, Sam – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2015

Downes, Natalie; Roberts, Philip – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2015
This paper explores the idea that rurality is important in children's learning even though it is in conflict with dominant educational discourses. Crucial to identifying this was the use of research methods that focused on rural meanings. In this paper we report on an ethnographic study that explored the experiences of parent supervisors of…

Thomas, Kym; Ellis, Bronwyn; Kirkham, Renae; Parry, Louka – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2014
The lower rates of participation in higher education of people from remote areas, together with the under-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in higher education, make it less likely that students from remote Indigenous communities will aspire to attend university. Educators and community must develop working…

Specifically, those in small rural or remote schools were significantly more inclined…

McLean, Fiona M.; Dixon, Roselyn M.; Verenikina, Irina – Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 2014
Teachers in isolated schools are often under-resourced and overwhelmed with additional pressures.
