Summary Note The revised edition of Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education takes a fresh look at the challenges and achievements that have occurred in this important area since the books original release in 2003. Interest in Aboriginal education has increased through federal government policy commitments arising out of 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, there have been a number of state and federal government responses giving 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, Noel Pearsons blueprint for educational reform on Cape York, and drawing on data from numerous sources including the MySchool website, Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education provides a comprehensive look at the effects on Indigenous students of these reform efforts.
