Abstract

This paper reports one part of a broader Aboriginal Voices Project
that has been undertaken by 13 Australian researchers bringing
together 10 systematic reviews on Aboriginal School Education. The
extent of collaboration and engagement between school and community
leaders is important to influence joint decision-making and
required to attain lasting change. This review investigates how
leadership in both the school and community can contribute to
effecting a sustained change in Aboriginal student learning and
social outcomes. It also examined the impacts of school policy,
governance and decision-making. Findings from the systematic
review have highlighted six themes that exemplify the importance
of leadership in establishing successful collaborations in Indigenous
educational settings to impact positively on student social and
academic outcomes.
