Abstract

Why the need for a special edition on First Nations ruraleducation? Surprisingly,there is almost no literature within Australia that discusses the significance of ruralityin First Nations education.Many research articles describe the significance of remotenessin First Nations education. Much of the extant research is built on a premise that remoteness goes hand in hand with disadvantage and outcomes often described as 'poor' and 'failing'. The lack of literature on First Nations 'rural' education coupled with the deficit language discourse surrounding First Nations 'remote' education triggered a global investigation into the topic.
