Policy reform over the last decade in Australia has focused on fairness and inclusion for all students. Yet, there is still a long way to go in reducing educational inequalities and appropriately supporting students of all abilities and backgrounds to remain engaged at school and complete secondary education.
The SIFE (School is for Everyone) research aims:
The SIFE research is funded by the NSW Department of Education’s Strategic Research Fund: Priority Projects. The project directly addresses the NSW Department of Education policy priorities for wellbeing, pedagogical innovation and inclusiveness.
The Project is led by the Centre for Children and Young People at Southern Cross University in conjunction with the NSW Department of Education, Charles Sturt University and the NSW Office of the Advocate for Children and Young People.
The CYRA Service is assisting the team in a knowledge translation role, creating a distinctive look and feel for the project, along with promotional materials, recruitment flyers and research summaries. Find out more about the study here.
