dc.description.abstractThis chapter contributes to the intensified focus by government, schools, and communities on building capacity for parental engagement in children’s schooling. More specifically it discusses new ways that schools and Indigenous families and communities might be supported to build sustainable partnerships for such an enterprise: specifically in teaching and supporting children to read Standard Australian English. The first section outlines Australia’s Indigenous education policy with a view to highlighting a national policy shift from schools’ sole accountability for children’s learning to a focus on building partnerships between schools, parents, families, and communities to strengthen Indigenous children’s literacy. The next section looks to examples of how home-school partnership policies have been enacted in Australia and New Zealand. The chapter concludes with a reappraisal of what counts as “parent engagement” in reading for Indigenous parents, carers, and communities.
