This revised edition of Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education takes a fresh look at the challenges and achievements in this important area since the book's original release in 2003.
Interest in Aboriginal education in Australia has increased through federal government policy commitments from the 2007 national apology and the 'Closing the Gap' commitment by state and federal governments. As a result of the increased awareness which led to these initiatives, several state and federal government responses have given prominence to Aboriginal education as a public policy and educational issue.
Examining the impact of initiatives - such as the 'Shared Responsibility Agreements,' the 'Follow the Dream' program, the 'NT Intervention,' and Noel Pearson's blueprint for educational reform on Cape York - Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education provides a comprehensive look at the effects on Indigenous students of these reform efforts.
