    According to the ABS there are about 477,000 Aboriginal people in Australia. Less than half live in the areas you cite.So where do get your 400,000 children?

    My mistake Dalec, thanks for pointing it out. I unthinkingly was taken in by misleading information from the progress page of OLPC Australia.
