pp. 339 #1217 The educational needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have been neglected by schools in Australia. Low rates of success and high dropout rates have contributed to the continuing exclusion of Indigenous students from higher education and from better opportunities in life. There is no doubt that massive change is needed in the education of Indigenous students if they are going to succeed in school at the same rates as other students in Australia. Perspectives on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education provides guidance to teachers and student teachers in bringing about this change. This text examines the foundations of Indigenous education and provides beginning and experienced teachers with the understanding and information to enable them to work more effectively with Indigenous students. The contributors to this text, all experts in their fields, explain the foundation of the present state of Indigenous education and provide clear insights into future direction for teaching. The authors draw on their experience and expertise to offer strategies that will enable both student and experienced teachers to succeed in their teaching. The text will be valuable for student teachers and for practicing teachers in urban and rural schools who teach Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students.
