Brief description Teachers For a Fair Go: A study of teachers who 'make a difference' to students in poverty. Restricted educational outcomes are central to entrenched disadvantage in poor communities in both rural and urban Australia. This project directly addresses education's role in equal opportunities for all Australians. It seeks to work with, and inform, Australia's largest educational jurisdiction (the NSWDET) about practices which gain success for its poorest students. The project also applies new ideas around motivation and engagement from within the MeE Framework, developed at the University of Western Sydney. Using teachers as co-researchers also takes forward methodological practices in investigating what makes a difference in the social and academic outcomes of students in poverty.
