Abstract As an Indigenous educator working in mainstream education, I found it disheartening to read that, in order for a child to 'succeed' in Australia, they need to enter the education system with specifically defined behaviour styles. Styles such as asking questions when they don't know something and following a set routine (King & Boardman, 2006).
