All employees of the New South Wales Department of Education in Australia, including teachers, will be required to take part in training on the continent's Aboriginal population as a way to better serve those students. "The new policy is much wider in its commitment to support systemwide action to close the gap in learning," Minister for Education Verity Firth said. "We see it as a major way of achieving the goal that by 2012 aboriginal student outcomes will match or exceed the outcomes of the broader student population."
