Summary
"This paper raises a number of questions about the interpretation of consultations with Aboriginal communities across the Northern Territory concerning the link between cuts to welfare payments and school non-attendance. The Federal Government's recent report, 'Stronger Futures Report on Consultations', is based on the belief that Aboriginal people support the proposal to remove welfare payments in cases where children do not attend school.... This paper suggests that there is considerable doubt that the views of Aboriginal people are as clear as suggested by the Government report, and present analysis which suggests disquiet about the proposal to cut welfare payments and other aspects of education that are being provided to Aboriginal communities. The paper draws on transcripts of Cosmic committee consultations and public meetings that took place in the Northern Territory between June and August 2011 to see what was said about the problems of non-attendance.
