His professional influence and socialjustice agenda positively impacted teachers’ practice, as they worked with him in this field. In many discussions and meetings, he revealed important evidence-based truths about cross-cultural knowledges and ways of viewing the world. Stephen’s prolific writing in this field has greatly influenced teachers’ orientations to cross-cultural teaching in these contexts. It is with respect and thanks that we acknowledge his work and ongoing positive influence on the effectiveness of bilingual education and cross-cultural teaching in remote NT communities.
