Abstract

Education has long been recognised as a fundamental right in itself as well as a means of realising other rights. The UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights has considered that education in accordance with art 13 of ICESCR must be available, accessible, acceptable and adaptable. It must accordingly be relevant, culturally appropriate and flexible enough to adapt to diverse social and cultural settings. These diverse settings include prisons in which detainee populations are marked by low educational attainment.
The program we will discuss link student tutors with indigenous inmates at Port Phillip Prison in a way which promotes cultural identity and connection to community and offers a valuable learning experience for all involved.
