Summary Socioeconomic disadvantage continues to be a strong determinant of the educational outcomes of young Australians. In particular, middle years students from low socioeconomic backgrounds are persistently at risk of disengagement and early leaving. This risk can be ameliorated by engaging, student-centred learning that is connected to students' lives. This article considers the findings of an independent review of Education Foundation's Cityscape program, recently reframed as the Classroom to Community program. It provides insights into the learning experiences that foster middle years engagement in low socioeconomic contexts as well as the challenges inherent in reframing teacher practice along more student-centred lines.
