Comment on Anderson says she is not in conflict with Chief Minister on bilingual schooling by David Chewings.

The differences between Terry and Alison on the value of bilingual education is obvious and on the record.
What is not on the record … still, is a comment from the Treasurer, the Deputy and the Minister for Education, the Member for Araluen, the one and only Robyn Jane Lambley.
Using the research of Helen Hughes to bolster one’s political position is equivalent to seeking out Andrew Bolt for advice on refugees.
Alison could ride quite easily into the top job in the Northern Territory if she wants. The Member for Namatjira needs no advice from the extreme right on matters like education.
As a fluent speaker of many languages, she knows intimately, the place of culture in blackfella life.

They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.
