Abstract

On the 21st Anniversary of the South Australian watershed report “Listen to me I’m Leaving” and as a follow up to the 2019 “Those Who Disappear” national report, this industry paper considers the issues of school disengagement and detachment from a South Australian perspective. In this report we draw together our experiences and research in school disengagement and detachment as former teachers and school leaders in the South Australian public education system. Our recent research has taken us into the Catholic and Independent sectors. In this report, our experience and research make clear a road map for more inclusive education provision for all students involving all sectors, all areas of government, NGOs, and young people – Acting Together.
