Summary
Advocates for urgent educational reforms in remote Aboriginal communities; from experience in Tiwi Islands (Bathurst and Melville Islands); states completion of primary education in remote communities does not equip students with skills for secondary education; lack of educational success and employment; parents and communities responsibility for education of children; recommendations on childcare/pre-school education; welfare and absenteeism; priority of primary education; staff turnover in remote communities; scholarship programs, work experience, apprenticeship programs and facilities maintenance; distinguishes between "education" and "school based learning"; argues that successive generational exposure to European culture has lead to deterioration in physical, mental and social skills
