The image of Cathy Freeman and Melinda Gainsford-Taylor carrying the Australian and Aboriginal flags on their victory lap at the 1994 Commonwealth Games illustrates a watershed in Australian sporting history. This chapter provides a summary of some recent research findings and identified the implications of these findings for delivering excellence in the teaching of Indigenous students-noting that many of these quality practices are also useful for other Australian students. It reports on the first Australian Reconciliation Barometer research. It suggests that other Australians clearly want to learn more about Aboriginal history and culture. In 2006, the Indigenous Land Corporation bought the old Redfern Public School in inner Sydney from the New South Wales government. Under the Indigenous Education Action Plan, teachers would need to learn how to teach Aboriginal children as part of their training before they could register to work in public and private schools.
