On Western measures of education performance, such as NAPLAN, students living in remote areas of Australia are over-represented in the tail of performance. The gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners in numeracy widens as students progress through school (ACARA, 2009). This presentation explores the context within which this gap is created and offers some suggestions to teachers, educational researchers and policy makers on reasons for this gap, but also on how the gap may be addressed.
