    This Radio National program raises issues about indigenous literacy. Jeanie Adams of Black Ink Press in Townsville, Northern Queensland, talks about some of the reasons for low literacy among many indigenous Australians. One of her key arguments is that indigenous youth/students are not well represented in fiction novels, therefore are unlikely to engage in reading. The link to the program is here.
    What do you think about the arguments she makes?
