Summary
Discusses the transition from remote Indigenous community of Lockhart River in Cape York to boarding school, a common fact of life for students not only living in the Cape York and Torres Strait areas, but also other remote regions in South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory; access for remote Indigenous students to quality education provisions in urban areas is key element of government policy in addressing disadvantage in education outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students; lack of research in context of effectiveness in ensuring delivery of a quality secondary education; author discusses research results from case study and qualitative research methods to examine transition from remote community, Lockhart from perspective of students, family and care-givers; analysis of relevant documents will be utilized in order to explore experience and provide detailed participant perspectives on transition to boarding school; proposed research will work to engage and empower community; contribution to debate regarding importance of maximizing opportunities for success for Indigenous students who are required to be educated well away from their home communities; author looks at David Mander's Doctoral Thesis, 'The Transition Experience to Boarding School for Male Aboriginal Secondary School Students from Regional and Remote Communities Across Western Australia' and Bruce Wilson's, 'Review of Indigenous Educationin the Northern Territory'
