This issue also has a story about one of those inspiring programs that are developed to actually address a problem and create turnaround results.This one is from up north, where a Torres Strait Islander education program has been set up after connecting the main reasons why young people are dropping out of school, or badly underachieving, with language differences.The program has a sound educational base, and is supported by the community members and language teachers. It's hopefully another model of a program that could be suitable for many other areas around the country.
