Policy settings across governments characterise boarding schools using the language of
opportunity and choice: boarding schools enable rural and remote living young people to access
the best of education systems, irrespective of where they live. The papers presented in this Special Edition test this proposition. Authors from Australia and overseas address the topic of boarding, with a special focus on the experience of remote First Nations communities in and overseas. Their combined insights indicate that where several preconditions are met, boarding schools can transform lives in all the best ways, but where providers fail to consider the holistic wellbeing of their students, great harm can ensue.
