    Abo's are thick.

    It's official.
    Indigenous students are six years behind in literacy and numeracy, report says

    ANNA PATTY EDUCATION EDITOR

    April 29, 2010

    INDIGENOUS students are trailing mainstream students by six years, according to analysis of their performance in national literacy and numeracy tests.
    The report from the right-wing think tank, the Centre of Independent Studies, shows indigenous students in year 9 achieved similar scores last year to non-indigenous students in year 3.
    The data from the federal government's My School website confirmed that indigenous education failure was concentrated in schools attended mainly by Aboriginal children.
    The report's authors, Helen Hughes and Mark Hughes, ranked the performance of about 9500 primary and secondary schools across Australia based on NAPLAN results. The bottom 150 schools were filled with mostly indigenous students.
    The Herald has reported on ''white flight'' from public to private schools, identified by NSW high school principals. This has created an educational apartheid in NSW towns including Mungindi and Boggabilla where indigenous students fill public schools and white students attend the Catholic school.
    The CIS report said the latest NAPLAN results were ''appalling''.
    Of the indigenous students who sat the tests, 40 per cent - 60,000 students - failed to meet national minimum standards, a proportion mirroring the 40 per cent of indigenous families who were welfare-dependent. ''Every state and territory has a problem, in every year, in every subject,'' the report said.
    ''NSW, with failure rates of 20 per cent, Queensland, with 30 per cent and Western Australia, with nearly 50 per cent, have the largest indigenous student populations. The Northern Territory remains an outlier with failure rates significantly higher than any other state or territory.''
    Because 60 per cent of indigenous students passed the NAPLAN tests, their indigenous background was not considered to determine performance.
    Included among barriers to achievement were low expectations and chronically low school attendance rates.
    The number of face-to-face hours indigenous students had with teachers were fewer than in mainstream schools.
    The CIS report also revealed that Victoria and the ACT recorded very high rates of students who did not sit the tests. The report authors said it was probable that most students who did not sit the tests would not meet the national minimum standard and that NAPLAN results therefore understated the extent of indigenous failure.
    The report shows that in NSW, 18 per cent of enrolled indigenous students did not sit the NAPLAN tests last year. That compared to 26 per cent in Victoria, 29 per cent in WA, 30 per cent in South Australia, 27 per cent in the ACT, 25 per cent in the Northern Territory and 18 per cent in Tasmania.
    However, in the NT, NAPLAN participation rates had significantly increased between 2008 and 2009.
    Only a handful of indigenous schools were performing to minimum national standards.
    The report recommended initiatives including stricter behavioural codes, longer school hours and more face-to-face teaching hours.

    Don't dare to say that equality of the races is a myth or you will be attacked from all sides. Political correctness is when everyone with intelligence knows the truth but does not dare to say it. No doubt the smarter children will have to be dumbed down to keep the myth going.

    Aboriginals are not generally stupid , just uneducated and in this respect they are their own worst enemies because they do not, in the main have a natural drive to learn to business world standards.
    Families do not push them either so it all gets too easy (or too hard if you like), no one goes to school and then all resent those that do and get the big jobs while they're cleaning streets.
    Teachers at times don't help much either with some very idealistic attitudes, my nephew came home from school and told me his teacher told him it was wrong to send aboriginal children to school before they were 12, as this was, according to their culture when childhood ends.
    Great idea , this would put them 7 years behind the other kids in school?

    Australians are thick in general so that means abos must be thicker than a bag of spanners.

    They'd have to go a long way to beat the Thais, in some provinces a whopping 16% are medically regarded as retarded.

    Well at least we are clean, unlike the dirty smelly great unwashed of the UK who treat a bar of soap like it is infected with the plague.

    A dirtier more smelly group I am yet to meet......except for abos.

    The opening put me off as I thought it was BS.
    Going down to the You Tube posts made me forget that Bs and enjoy them.

    And what have you come up with, anything? Or are you merely standing on the shoulders of giants, 'superority' by association.

    I bet you wouldn't last a day in the Outback.
