Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education: Fully revised edition

Quentin Beresford, Gary Partington, Graeme Gower

The revised edition of Reform and Resistance in Aboriginal Education takes a fresh look at the challenges and achievements that have occurred for both teachers and students in this significant area of education since the book’s original release in 2003.

Experts in various fields provide well researched and strongly argued chapters on family, language, health, attendance, classroom management and the criminal justice system. Although there are no easy answers, the authors present programs and approaches that work, ensuring the updated edition of this book remains an invaluable reference.

Examining the impact of initiatives such as the Shared Responsibility Agreements, the Follow the Dream program, the NT Intervention, Noel Pearson’s 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.
