Collins Review available on internet PDF Print E-mail

THE Collins Review of Indigenous Education in the Northern Territory can be viewed on the Internet at http://www.nted.ntgov.au "Learning Lessons"

The findings are based on information gathered through 106 formal submissions, public hearings in Darwin, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, visits to forty- four schools, 126 interviews and forty forums involving a wide range of individuals and organisations.

The review was commissioned to establish

  • The views and educational aspirations of indigenous parents and community members in relation to their children's schooling, with particular reference to English literacy and numeracy
  • The key issues affecting educational outcomes for indigenous children
  • Supportable actions for educational outcome improvements.

Among the recommendations from the review are a number relating to `two-way learning' programs and ESL ILSS — English as Second Language for Indigenous Language Speaking Students.
