UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) - Education

There are a number of articles in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) that focus on a child’s right to education.
The UNCRC is a legally-binding international agreement setting out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of every child.
🤔So why are there so many children left without any access to education?
The sad thing is ALL CHILDREN would benifit from a neurodivergent friendly classroom.
One where:
✅ Its Sensory friendly
✅ Praise and positivity
✅ Shame Free
✅ Colaborative working
✅ Fidgets tools
✅ Movement breaks
✅ Standing desks
✅ Variety of chairs
The UNCRC says that children and young people have the right to education no matter who they are: regardless of race, gender or disability.
👉 Article 28 says that “State Parties recognise the right of children to education” and “should take all appropriate measures to ensure that school discipline is administered in a manner consistent with the child’s human dignity.”
👉 Article 29 focuses on the aims of education and says that governments agree that “the education of the child shall be directed to:
✅ The development of the child’s personality, talents and mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential.
✅ The development of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and the principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.
✅ The development of respect for the child’s parents, his or her own cultural identity, language and values, for the national values of the country in which the child is living, the country from which he or she may originate and for civilisations different from his or her own.
✅ The preparation of the child for responsible life in a free society in the spirit of understanding, peace, tolerance, equality of sexes and friendship among all peoples, ethnic, national and religious groups and persons of indigenous origin.
