Indigneous Language Program producing results

This story was on the abc website today. On the one hand it is exciting to see real results published in the mass media about how indigenous languages in schools has a positive effect on attendance and learning- on the other hand it makes t all the more frustrating that in schools across the NT that have majority of indigenous students aren't being given the same opportunity. I hope this won't be like climate change ( or is it already?) where someone works it out and then fifty years later governments start deciding it is time for action and policy.

Anyway- good onya Western Sydney schools.
