Abstract: "The Bilingual Education Program in the Northern Territory
was established in 1973 to deliver an effective education to students
in remote Indigenous schools. In 2008, the NT Government closed the
Program, citing low student achievement in English literacy as its
rationale. This chapter evaluates the program according to a wider set
of criteria, with particular focus on the Warlpiri schools. It
considers the training of local staff, community involvement in
schools, the development of curriculum, and extensive literature and
linguistic documentation. These criteria are not prominent in
government evaluations, yet are identified in national and
international literature as key to achieving student outcomes (UNESCO
2008a, 2008b; Silburn et al. 2011) and echo priorities expressed by
Indigenous adults involved in education."

present preliminary results of my research into extrinsic sources of
data and information concerning the bird knowledge of the Warlpiri
people, the traditional Aboriginal owners of much of the Tanami Desert
in central Australia. I will investigate the potential that Aboriginal
ornithological knowledge may have to contribute to avian conservation,
management and knowledge of arid-zone biodiversity. The Tanami Desert
is a good example of a well-defined region where local Aboriginal
knowledge may be able to make such a contribution."
