The Rights of Indigenous Children to Education - October 2015

Wednesday, October 28, 2015 - 12:30 to 13:30

Education plays a seminal role in the transformation of life trajectories for all children but especially for those whose life experiences are constrained by poor socio-economic circumstances or social and cultural marginalisation.

The role that human rights plays in guaranteeing a decent chance at education will examined by Professor Cindy Kiro of Starpath, at the University of Auckland,  in the third of our professorial seminars for the year.

Professor Kiro will talk about how developed settler economies such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand have refined their education systems to deal with indigenous children? What the implications are of these developments for education today? And how do we achieve both equity and excellence from these education systems?

These and other issues were examined in this, our penultimate seminar for 2015.
