2.18 Noel Pearson, Radical Hope: Education and Equality in Australia (2009)

I do not know the policies of the Australian Departments of Education towards Indigenous education, but, based on the experiences of those I know, I am totally willing to accept Pearson's contention that they are incompetent, idealogically-driven, evidence-ignoring nincompoops.

I concur with his strongly worded argument that primary level education should concentrate on teaching reading and writing.

I always have mixed feelings about Pearson. Because on one hand, I find his arguments have at least some merit. But on the other hand, what company he finds himself in! Caroline Overington, Mungo MacCallum, Geoffrey Cousins, right wing nutjobs one and all.
