Abstract

[Truncated] The study investigates the perceptions that teachers in WA Government Schools have of the phrase "student at risk". It examines how those perceptions have changed with the introduction of the Students at Educational Risk policy,which also introduced a formal definition of a student at educational risk. Data were collected in three ways. Firstly, a Stimulus Sheet was distributed to two primary and two secondary government schools in country and metropolitan Western Australia. Secondly, semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine teachers and educators in schools and in the Central Office of the Education Department of WA. Finally, four case studies from the researcher's own experience are described that demonstrate aspects of the research.
