ACER statement on the Voice to Parliament campaign
In the spirit of reconciliation, ACER’s Board and Executive support an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament. The Uluru Statement from the Heart includes an invitation to walk together in a movement of the Australian people for a better future. We accept this invitation.
Through our work, we understand the importance of collaboration with First Nations people in fulfilling our mission of improving learning. Our experience is that listening to the voices of First Nations communities and researchers is critical for ensuring that successful education policy, practice and outcomes are achieved for all Australians.
ACER continues a journey of understanding and reflection on how we can be responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through the contributions we make to education. We see this statement of support for the Voice to Parliament as an important step for our organisation.
