Human Rights and Children's Rights - Right to Education

This tool, which targets governments, international and national agencies, parents, teachers, communities, and civil society organisations, focuses on current thinking and practice on human rights-based approaches in the education sector. It presents key issues and challenges in rights-based approaches and provides a framework for policy and programme development from the level of the school up to the national and international levels. The predominant focus in this publication is on basic education, but within a life-cycle and lifelong learning approach.
