Culturally responsive pedagogy: Socio-educational support and community engagement for educational development of aboriginal students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article reports on the socio-educational support provided by local community, parents and school teachers for aboriginal students. The investigation revealed that most aboriginal parents have positive attitudes towards their children’s education. Three main themes identified in this study are: fundamental support, lack of skills and knowledge to provide socio-educational support, and culturally responsive pedagogy. Parents are found to be lacking in skills and knowledge of educational-guidance. It was found that many socio-educational programmes were carried out at the school level. Providing support for parents by taking into account culturally-responsive approaches is recomended.
