Abstract

Preface: This case study captures the key reform measures implemented within the Atherton hub (Atherton SHS, Atherton SS, Herberton SS and Kuranda District State College) designed to improve Indigenous education outcomes. The reforms were implemented during 2010/2011. It is designed to capture key initiatives at 'a moment in time' as discussed with school leaders, staff, students and community members.

The case study is presented in a way that:

*Acknowledges the historical and social complexity of the communities. Without this background, the reform measures cannot be seen in "perspective" and charting a realistic way forward is not possible.

*Recognises that change and reform can only be sustained through committed personnel.

*Presents a multilayered view of the challenges and outcomes of the reform, noting that only longitudinal analysis can accurately capture the outcomes of the key reforms enacted during 2010/2011.
