ABORIGINAL EDUCATION – A LAMENT

How good it would be if I could ever have a conversation with the Federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs on matters to do with Indigenous Education. That of course will never happen because the way things were managed and met in past times, together with strategies that were tried and which worked are of no interest to present leaders.

It is little wonder that in so many ways we get stuck

on Genesis 1: 1.

The shame of turning away from the history of Indigenous education is that there were many things done that were good in terms of both approach and outcome. Peer mentoring is a strategy that could have been employed but never has been used. Sadly, remote education goes around in circles, gaining little ground. And that is both a terrible shame and a sad waste of human and material resources.
