Teaching about children’s rights

Most curricula aim to equip pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to become rounded, informed and responsible citizens in society.
Article 29 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states the purpose of education is 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.”
Teaching children and young people about the Convention means that they can find out about the legal and human rights and responsibilities that underpin society.
