Research Report 49: Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy

This Research Report by TJRyan Foundation Research Associate John McCollow provides a summary of some of the issues that arise from the operation of the CYAAA. It concludes that the recent turmoil in the Aurukun community tells us little one way or the other about the efficacy of the educational model employed at the local school. As a noteworthy and controversial initiative in the important area of Aboriginal education, however, the operation of the CYAAA deserves to be the subject of ongoing examination and review.
