Fran Kilgariff and the Territory’s core economic challenge

Alice Springs Mayor, Fran Kilgariff, presented a paper to the Bennelong society, found here.

An excerpt:

2006 census figures indicate that the indigenous proportion of our population is growing faster than the non-indigenous…Mal Brough said in a recent talk to the National Press Club (15/8/07) that over 2000 kids in the NT, between 6 and 15, are not enrolled for school, let alone attend.  In my opinion the biggest economic issue for the NT today is that a rising proportion of the population is neither educated or job ready and unless that can be remedied then our future economic growth is untenable.
