Dare to Lead
ASCIV has a proven track record of working co-operatively with Indigenous communities to advance their educational goals and enrich schools for all students.
These efforts were previously acknowledged when ASCIV CEO, Stephen Franzi-Ford received a citation from Dare to Lead which recognized his commitment and personal contribution to the improvement and educational outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and the goals of the Dare To Lead Project. Stephen was appointed a Dare to Lead Ambassador in 2009.
ASCIV has long encouraged schools to sign up to the Dare to Lead coalition. Not just sign up – but to actively embrace the challenge of improving educational outcomes for Indigenous students and ensuring all students develop an informed understanding of Australian Indigenous history and culture.
While over 5,000 schools across the country have joined – less than 30% of Victorian schools are members.
Let’s do something about it in 2012.
