Aboriginal Inquiry: Lifting All Learners

An Impact Assessment of the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN)

2.5 Conclusion

This literature is an important backdrop to understanding the notion of the impact of the AESN because it highlights what are known as ‘promising practices’ in Aboriginal education, how to best effect change in teacher practice, and transforming or altering the conditions for Aboriginal student learning. These ideas will be re-visited and used in conducting an analysis of the data collected for this study so as to consider the degree and scope of impact the Network is having on teachers, schools, districts and the success of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students.
