Children's rights education

Children’s rights education is the teaching and practice of children’s rights in schools, educational programmes or institutions, as informed by and consistent with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. When fully implemented, a childrens rights education program consists of both a curriculum to teach children their human rights, and framework to operate the school in a manner that respects childrens rights. Articles 29 and 42 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child require children to be educated about their rights In addition to meeting legal obligations of the Convention to spread awareness of children’s rights to children and to adults, teaching children about their rights has the benefits of improving their awareness of rights in general, making them more respectful of other peoples rights, and empowering them to take action in support of other peoples rights. Early programs to teach children about their rights, in Belgium, Canada, England and New Zealand have provided evidence of this. Childrens rights in schools were taught and practiced as an ethos of liberating the child well before the UN Convention was written, and that this practice helped to inform the values and philosophy of the Convention, the IBE and UNESCO, though sadly these practices, and this history are not really acknowledged or built-upon by the UN. This is one reasons that childrens rights have not become a foundation of schools despite 100 years of struggle.


Classical education movement

The classical education movement advocates a form of education based in the traditions, with a particular focus on education as understood and taught in Classical antiquity. The curriculum and pedagogy of classical education was first developed during the Middle Ages by Martianus Capella and systematized during the Renaissance by Petrus Ramus. Capellas original goal was to provide a systematic, memorable framework to teach all human knowledge. The term "classical education" has been used in Western culture for several centuries, with each era modifying the definition and adding its own selection of topics. By the end of the 18th century, in addition to the trivium and quadrivium of the Middle Ages, the definition of a classical education embraced study of literature, poetry, drama, philosophy, history, art, and languages. In the 20th and 21st centuries, it has been used to refer to a broad-based study of the liberal arts and sciences, as opposed to a practical or pre-professional program. There exist a number of informal groups and professional organizations which undertake the classical approach to classical education in earnest. Within the secular classical movement, in the 1930s Mortimer Adler and Robert Hutchins set forth the "Great Books" of Western civilization as center stage for a classical education curriculum. Also some public schools primarily charters have structured their curricula and pedagogy around the trivium and integrate the teaching of values sometimes called "character education" into the mainstream classroom. There are several major societies and associations within the classical Christian education movement, including the Society for Classical Learning and the Association of Classical and Christian Schools. The University of Pennsylvania seal 1894 depicted the trivium as a stack of books providing the foundation for a modified quadrivium of mathematics, natural philosophy empirical science, astronomy, and theology.
