Independent Schools Working to Close the Gap on Education
The Independent Schools Council of Australia welcomes the strong focus on education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in the Closing the Gap Prime Minister’s Report 2016, particularly in regard to students in remote and very remote areas.
ISCA Executive Director Colette Colman today said that “the Independent school sector makes an important contribution to the national effort to close the gap, and values its partnership with government in delivering educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. However, while the report highlights a few encouraging figures in the education goals there is still much work to be done.”
