Revisiting indigenous education by Helen Hughes( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Literacy and numeracy of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in remote Australia have not improved in 20 years. A perceived gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students has masked the real gap between non-performing Indigenous remote schools and mainstream schools, laying the blame for low Indigenous achievement on ethnicity rather than on education policies. Because the causes of poor remote schooling have not been identified, government attempts to improve remote Indigenous schools have been ineffective
Indigenous employment, unemployment and labour force participation : facts for evidence based policies by Helen Hughes( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the demand- and supply-side factors behind Indigenous joblessness, and presents recommendations for policy reform. It compares statistics on employment, unemployment, and work participation of Indigenous and other Australians, and reviews the determinants of labour force participation and unemployment, with excessive welfare in urban areas and insufficient education in remote areas found to be significant causes of unemployment
Indigenous education 2010 by Helen Hughes( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third annual review of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. Results from the 2009 NAPLAN survey again show poor student and school performance, with many students failing to meet national minimum standards. This review examines the results in reading and numeracy, school attendance, curriculum, and national standards. It then discusses the underlying factors behind these performance levels and notes some initiatives that have been trialled in schools

Private housing on indigenous lands by Helen Hughes( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Almost 20% of Australia and almost 50% of the Northern Territory are Indigenous lands. Yet Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders cannot build their own houses on them. Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders living on their lands have the lowest living standards in Australia. They cannot access the benefits of the land they own. Existing territory, state and federal government legislation and programs to introduce private housing and business are seriously flawed. The governments' own data confirm that despite the billions they are spending on "social" housing, when these programs are completed housing on Indigenous lands will remain sub-standard and overcrowded. The conclusions that follow have two objectives: to reinforce and maintain traditional landowners' communal land rights, and to introduce individual private property rights so that Indigenous homeownership and business can develop immediately and rapidly."--Executive Summary, p. vii
