NT leaders clash over language in schools...
Two Indigenous leaders are in dispute over a Northern Territory Government plan to force remote Aboriginal bilingual schools to teach the first four hours of classes in English. The NT's Deputy Leader and Education Minister Marion Scrymgour says the plan is aimed at tackling the poor education outcomes for indigenous children. But the Race Discrimination Commissioner Tom Calma isn't convinced.

It was arguments over mandatory language lessons that sparked the Soweto riots in 1976.

But I feel assured that the white trash that Sarra identified and their bands of 'result oriented' social workers will pick their way through this mess and keep themselves employed for another lifetime of black social despair.
