It’s not a failed education system. It’s just that the people won’t go to school.
They need to stop being pampered and get them to take responsibility for themselves.

You cannot keep blaming the system. That is the biggest cop out I’ve heard. Indigenous people have the best opportunity.

NT road sealing costs threat to Outback Way?
Things in the NT always seem to be dearer. I believe the the Alice Springs council does have the equipment but do not have experience. Cheaper to get contractors from interstate.
The council cannot even lay foot paths properly. If this is the case, why are council rates so expensive in Alice Springs? The council seem to do very little.
