Comment on Zoning: Racial segregation can start in primary school by Ian Sharp.

Trust a geographer to have a look at a map! And the stats. Good analysis Steff.
And her point is right, government schools are a good place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous kids to mix in. It worked for our kids at Sadadeen Primary and Anzac Hill High.
Trevor Read is a top bloke, did great work at ASHS years ago, but had climbed Jim Hackers Greasy Pole.
He is now the head departmental honcho in the Alice and is spruiking the official line, Sir Humphrey style, trying to steer us away from the obvious. But what can be done?
Would rezoning be likely to cause a shift from public to private, rather than rebalance the student mix? A great opportunity for some creative thinking here.
In my mind this is a bigger issue for the Alice than Anzac Oval.
Get together Steff and Trev, two good smart people, help Alice schools get back on track. For the good of all.

@ Steve. Your grasp of the Constitution on the point you raise is a bit dubious I think.
S 122: “The Parliament may make laws for the government of any territory surrendered by any State to and accepted by the Commonwealth, or of any territory placed by the Queen under the authority of and accepted by the Commonwealth, or otherwise acquired by the Commonwealth, and may allow the representation of such territory in either House of the Parliament to the extent and on the terms which it thinks fit.”
If I were you I wouldn’t stump up too much money on lawyers fees going to the High Court in support of your view.

@ Steve Brown: Ha! Interesting comment, bet you enjoyed reminding Jimmy of that.
However, re your comment “an idiotic undemocratic, I believe unconstitutional, electoral system …” I’m interested to learn why you think it is unconstitutional?

Don’t let this knock you off your stride, Jimmy, we need you to keep representing your values and ideas in public forums, including the Council.
I don’t always agree with you but you have made an invaluable contribution over the years.
