Inside Teaching : August 2010
www.atra.edu.au | firstname.lastname@example.org 20 QUESTIONS 43 staying becomes desirable. We don’t need extrinsic incentives. If a teacher can’t come to the Stronger Smarter Institute, what’s something that they can do to encourage their Indigenous students to succeed? What’s most likely to encourage failure? It’s extremely simple. We believe that an Aboriginal child can feel smarter and stronger or not. Basically, there’s no reason to collude with the view that Aboriginal children can’t learn and succeed. Is the future brighter for Indigenous children at school today than in, say, 2000? The tide of low expectations has turned. In some areas the results are yet to fow, but in others they’re fowing, but we need to work at it everywhere. Do you get enough time nowadays to have a kick-around with your own kids? Yeah, one has to be disciplined about these things. I have to work hard at it, and make sure that I make time. Thank you, Dr Chris Sarra.
