Foley, Gary & Elizabeth Muldoon: Indigenous curriculum

Foley, Gary & Elizabeth Muldoon

Pyning for Indigenous rights in the Australian curriculum‘, The Conversation, 15 August 2014

Argues that Indigenous history is under-represented or misrepresented in the current national history curriculum for secondary students. In particular, there is inadequate consideration of Indigenous struggles for land rights and self-determination. ‘In light of its actual content, the Australian Curriculum’s numerous statements affirming the critical importance of Indigenous histories are rendered hollow and its conservative critics absurd.’
