The announcement by the Morrison Government of $17.3 million to support Indigenous students at boarding schools needs to be strengthened by a long term commitment and a national Indigenous cultural education and boarding standard.

“Indigenous Education & Boarding Australia (IEBA) welcomes the investment of $17.3 million by the Morrison Government. The additional resources will create innovation, review of existing practices, improved dialogue with Indigenous families and generate an opportunity for education providers to enhance their practice. This is an excellent fit with our What Works initiative,” Greg Franks, IEBA CEO.
