The recent Closing the Gap report on Aboriginal Health contained mixed outcomes. One notable poor outcome was that there was little progress in halving the rate of jobless Indigenous Australians. According to The Australian, February 11thp.15, the Prime Minister while not giving details ‘outlined commitment to empowering communities and individuals. ....in keeping with his broader economic themes about excitement and innovation Mr Turnbull spoke of optimism and opportunity. In doing so he recognised that the government cannot hold all the answers; private sector efforts to create jobs, education and training –and break down barriers – are central’.
The editorial concluded that ‘Success is what is needed to close the gap, and success should be shamelessly embraced and pursued.’
