Neil Hooley (academic expert in Indigenous education): "There is no excuse for Indigenous education in Australia to be in such a terrible and shameful state. Given the billions of dollars that are allocated to primary and secondary schooling Australia-wide, the basis of the problem must be deeply rooted ideologically and educationally. The question of racism in the current curriculum must therefore be exposed. We need an indigenous curriculum that will cater to the needs of aboriginal students and help strengthen their communities."
