Ensuring Children Rights to Education
Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on ensuring children rights to education. Education does not get success if it fails to provide knowledge to an individual internally. A person may have many educational qualifications but it all becomes useless if the person is not educated internally.The article speaks about the rights of a child to a bright future, and in assessing the subject of the article, the author has invariably answered several questions. Such questions are why and how should the children be educated. Though the author majorly discusses about the two questions, in his discussion he has touched upon some minor points like the constituents of the curriculum and the authority of decision making about childs education.In the first part of the article, the author Joel Feinberg has discussed the basic rights of the children. The rights discussed are not based on the subject of education only but they are based on variant practices of the social system. The author at the beginning has mentioned some religious matter. Adults take their children to particular religious ceremonies according to their choice and not on their childrens preferences. This could be a simple issue for the adult but it has a huge impact on our society, as the children from the early age are ordered to listen to the parents. We seldom consider the rights of the children. we impose our decisions on them.The author has mentioned some of the rights, which are common to both the adult and the children. He has called them as A-C rights. The A category rights are exclusive to the adults while the C category rights are described as integral to the children. He has divided the C category rights in two parts. Part one talks about the dependency of the children on the adult, like protection, home or shelter, food etc, which are familiar characteristics of the children. However, the author is more concerned about the second category of C rights.
