Education is an essential right, which enables everyone to receive instruction and to develop in his or her social life. The right to education is vital to the economic, social and cultural development of all societies.
Education: An Important Learning
Education helps to acquire basic knowledge
Education is the learning of various knowledge. It begins among the youngest through the acquisition of basic knowledge, that is to say literacy. At this stage, children learn to read and write through primary education and parenting.
This is an essential step in enabling the child to continue his education by integrating secondary education and higher education.
Education fosters the development of every child
Education is also a necessary learning that allows a person to develop his personality and identity, as well as his physical and intellectual capacities. In particular, education enables us to pass on the principles common to the new generations and to preserve and perpetuate the values of an entire society. It contributes to personal development by promoting social and professional integration.
The purpose of education is to improve the quality of life of a person. It offers disadvantaged adults and children a chance to get out of poverty. It is therefore an essential tool for the economic, social and cultural development of all the populations in the world.
The right to education: a fundamental and universal right
Education must be accessible to all children
Education is a human right that must be accessible to all people without discrimination. All children must be able to go to school and thus have the same opportunities to build a future. In addition, education must also be free so that children from disadvantaged backgrounds can also enjoy their right to education.
The education provided must be of good quality
Beyond accessibility, the right to education also implies that the objectives of learning must be attained. This means that all children have the right to a good quality education adapted to their needs.
Teachers must also be trained in teaching techniques that combine the pedagogical and the playful aspects in order to attract children’s interest.
It is the responsibility of countries to guarantee every child’s right to education. They must therefore concentrate their efforts on primary education to make schools accessible and free to all children and thus enable them to learn to read and write.
