Closing the Gap in Education for Indigenous Australians

This petition had 74 supporters

Closing the gap for between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Australians in terms of education is crucial as education establishes the foundations for success and opportunities in the future, helping people overcome other disadvantages, as people with low educational attainment tend to have poorer health outcomes, lower incomes and reduced employment prospects. Indigenous students are 19 times more likely than metropolitan students to be below the national minimum standard for education. 

Therefore, in order for equality and there to be equal opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, this gap needs to be closed. Help change their lives and raise awareness to this significant cause.
