Chris Garner

This is an excellent talk given by Chris Garner, who has taught in indigenous communities in both Australia and South Africa. He echoes the fact that “voice” and “context” are the most important things in education. He uses statistics to show the gap in education completion rates and also statistics showing dramatic changes when context applies. He argues for something that we all know is needed: A change in teaching dependent upon the needs of the student.

I would highly recommend this video and Mr. Garner’s research to anyone who is studying the educational reform in indigenous communities.
