Well the curriculum could be revised with proper respect to Papua New Guinea history. Get Kevin Donnelly and Professor Ken Wiltshire on to it as soon as possible.
And I seem to remember Julie Bishop responding favourably to the idea of much greater PNG/Australian student and teacher exchange schemes. But that was before the election.
(Come on Julie - make good on what you said in your dialogue with PNG Attitude contributors!)
And publishing PNG writings in Australia and promoting them as our closest neighbour's cultural heritage in Australian schools would be good.
And how about teaching Tok Pisin to Australian students?
And maybe give the PNG film archive to all secondary schools in Australia and PNG?
Just the cost of a few hundred copied DVD's and a bit of research. Most of it is in the Australian National Archives anyway.
And funding the PNG Dictionary of National Biography update, which PNG historians are crying out for.
Maybe this is all too much common sense.
Over to you Misters Pyne and Bernardi and Ms Bishop.
