The Pointed View: No debate on what keeps kids in school

NIT:19 Mar 09:
“Punishing parents to keep kids in school is a
short-sighted and knee jerk reaction that simply won’t see
Indigenous students return to the classroom, writes PROF
LARISSA BEHRENDT. Professor Mick Dodson’s recent call for
better education outcomes for Aboriginal children should
have provoked more discussion. The mainstream media focused
merely on more rhetoric by the welfare reform-obsessed to
continue to punish parents – and punish them more onerously
– if their children to not attend school.”
