Despite research and funding support for Aboriginal Education in Australia, an educational dilemma remains - Indigenous students are the group at greatest risk of not achieving adequate literacy skills to function effectively in today's society. This paper presents a brief overview of Aboriginal Education research and policy, identifies some of the complexities in the early literacy classroom experienced by Aboriginal students and teachers, makes some recommendations about future research and provides some case-study scenarios to illustrate teacher strategies for consideration.
