History textbooks still imply that Australians are white | NITV

Despite improvements to their content over time, secondary school history textbooks still imply that Australians are white. Textbook depictions of Australianness are not only relevant to experiences of national belonging or exclusion. Research has shown that students who aren’t represented in textbooks perform worse academically. My PhD research analysed portrayals of Australianness in secondary school history textbooks from 1950 to 2010.
