We still have a long way to go in terms of providing a real education environment in schools and other education establishments where students not only learn about child rights and broader human rights but live the theory that may be espoused. Any new resources are a welcome addition to the teacher’s toolbox, so here are some more from the Australian Human Rights Commission.
The Australian Human Rights Commission’s human rights education resources for teachers – rightsED – aims to help students develop a critical understanding of human rights and responsibilities, as well as developing the attitudes, behaviours and skills to apply them in everyday life.
rightsED is guided by a clear set of education principles and learning outcomes.
The approach supports the goals and direction of the UN World Programme for Human Rights Education, which aims to advance the implementation of human rights education programmes in all sectors.
