Year 11 Geography: Daniel O’Shea

Project topic: the Indigenous Education Gap (the Gap) and its consequences at a national and local level.

“My report investigates the Indigenous Education Gap through
answering three Inquiry Questions, Explain the nature of the Indigenous Education Gap, Investigate the impacts of the Indigenous Education Gap in economic, social, cultural and political contexts at a local and national level and evaluate attempts to rectify Indigenous Disadvantage,” he said.

“Attempts to rectify Indigenous Disadvantage have been lackluster over the past few years across Australia. The ‘Closing the Gap’ campaign has largely been ineffective, and Indigenous Disadvantage remains a critical issue.

“At IGS, however, attempts to rectify Indigenous Educational Disadvantage have been more successful, with Indigenous scholarship programs and initiatives like the IGS Koori Club all help with efforts.”
