Abstract

The revised edition of Reform and resistance in Aboriginal education reflects on the challenges and achievements that have occurred for both teachers and students in this significant area of education since the book's original release in 2003. The chapter, The impact of health on the education of Indigenous children, reviews the specific health issues currently affecting Indigenous children, and how these issues impact on their education. The chapter provides a summary of key indicators of Indigenous health status.

Prevalent issues and indicators discussed include:

  • infant mortality and birthweight status
  • nutrition
  • substance use
  • anaemia
  • ear disease and hearing loss
  • infectious diseases
  • eye conditions
  • oral health
  • injuries
  • social and emotional wellbeing.
