I hope that in 2012, the discourse around Aboriginal Education does happen in a positive and respectful manner. It is long overdue, particularly in the public education system, as the Focus nationally is currently focusing on the dire needs in First Nations schools (as it should be). I hope we don't forget the many Aboriginal students in the public system, as well as the incredible need for Aboriginal education to be taught to non-Aboriginal students.
I hope to be a part of that discourse, but if not, I hope that, at the very least, it happens. Our children, all of our children, deserve better.
