Summary The current Australian Federal government has voiced a commitment to an 'education revolution' and set targets for 'closing the gap' in education attainment for Aboriginal people. Unfortunately, this revolution appears to have bypassed prison education altogether with no mention of it in the publicly available policy documents. This is regrettable given the large numbers of Aboriginal people in custody and begs the question 'Are our incarcerated Indigenous citizens going to be excluded from any potential benefit of the 'revolution'?'
