'We got needs too': Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students in Urban Areas (Powerpoint presentation)

Fredericks, Bronwyn L. (2008) 'We got needs too': Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students in Urban Areas (Powerpoint presentation). (Unpublished)



Limited research highlights the plight of urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations and the issues that impact on their education outcomes. This is despite over 70 % of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia now living in urban or regional urban areas (ABS 2006). The statistics demonstrate that living in urban centres is as much part of reality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as living in a remote discrete community. Using Brisbane as a case study, this paper will explore some of the issues that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students face against a backdrop of the statistics and some of the current literature. It will argue for specific education strategies and programs to meet the needs of urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
