In commenting on future directions in Australian Indigenous education, I suggest that if classroom research focuses solely on strategies that a teacher might use to bring about effective learning outcomes, it will have little meaning for Indigenous students unless it also takes into account the cultural and historical realities of race relations and their aftermath. Experience in Australia over the last 40 years has consistently demonstrated the futility of research focusing exclusively on student learning regimes or teacher practice.
