Indigenous literacy policy implementation in Queensland schools : an evaluation
  • Pauline T Taylor, James Cook University
Indigenous literacy policy implementation in Queensland schools. The persistence of poor literacy outcomes for Indigenous students in Australia has been an educational policy focus for successive federal and state governments for decades. This book charts the implementation over three years through the perspectives of teachers, principals and administrators. It provides both a social archive and unique insight into policy implementation dynamics as they play out in systems and schools and gives understanding of the relationships between social contexts and educational outcomes for Indigenous students who do not speak English as their home language. Further, it gives voice to marginalised voices in policy implementation processes and describes how, even with the best of intentions, policy can institutionalise dominant cultural paradigms which permeate the social relations of knowledge production.
