DESCRIPTION


The biennial report,
Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators, is intended to inform Australian governments about whether policy programs and interventions are achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous people. It is prepared at the request of the Council of Australian Governments to help guide where further work is needed. The report describes Indigenous disadvantage against key indicators underpinned by a framework of priority outcomes, headline indicators and strategic areas for action.

Education headline indicators relate to:

  • Years 10 and 12 retention and attainment
  • Post secondary education participation and attainment
Strategic change indicators that relate to education include:
  • Preschool and school attendance
  • Literacy and numeracy at Years 3, 5, and 7 of schooling
  • Retention to Year 9 of secondary schooling
  • Inclusion of Indigenous cultural studies in school curricula
  • Involvement of Indigenous people in development and delivery of Indigenous cultural studies
  • The proportions of Indigenous and other young Australians 'at risk' of long-term disadvantage
  • The proportions of Indigenous and other Australians with a Certificate III or higher non-school qualification
