HALT Educators will be the Aboriginal equivalent of a lecturer in any Western teaching institution. Aboriginal processes of teaching and learning will be accorded the same status as non-Aboriginal methods. HALT Educators will train suitable young people from their areas to participate in the process. (Community Workers: refer Appendix B). It is expected this Aboriginal process of education will spread to Communities in the Top End, Arnhemland, Queensland and the Kimberley; when the Central Australian model starts to function. Meetings of HALT Educators will be held at least three times a year in an agreed Community (not a town) to: t perform administrative functions; t evaluate the HALT process; * renew and affirm acquaintanceships; and * discuss matters of mutual interest. NOTE: Compare with The Report of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody..32.2.20 and Recommendations 66 & 71.
