I’m so fucking done with our education department and the school curriculum.
Can we please stop teaching students that Aboriginals were savage and aggressive?
Can we stop teaching them that the English “settled” here?
Can we stop giving them the cheap cliff note version of aboriginal history?
How about instead of ignoring one of the most important facts in the history of Australia, we tell students the truth?
Let’s tell them what their ancestors really did to the “savage” aboriginals?
Let’s teach them about the lost generation?
Let’s tell them about what happened to aboriginal children? Or what they did to half caste babies?
The Rabbit Proof Fence isn’t teaching kids shit about what happened, it’s a shitty PG version.
