Humanity Education In Schools For Children

Author : Hariom singh

Education as a meaningful experience involves an endless search for better knowledge. It has no boundaries other than the human beings' capacity to be creatively and persistently curious. Human rights education is one such field that requires the same element of endless curiosity in understanding human rights both as an indispensable element in people's lives and as a tool for social change. Human rights education should involve more than the provisions of information and should constitute a comprehensive life-long process by which people at all levels in development and in all strata of society learn respect for the dignity of others and the means and methods of ensuring that respect in all societies.

Each time we look at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it gives us a timely reminder of the fundamental human standards that we all want, and need, to live by. The importance of human rights as a subject is growing every day and awareness about this should begin at an early age. That is why this should be included in the school curriculum the way environmental studies have been introduced as a subject. Initiatives on the teaching of human rights in schools in Asia is a means to make education meaningful not just to people's individual interest but to society as well.

Time and again, the idea of supporting the growth of human rights education programs in schools is questioned. The objection is largely based on two considerations: non-formal education on human rights is the most needed form of human rights education because it responds to pressing issues in society. It directly serves the interest of members of society who are disadvantaged or oppressed; schools do not cover many children in countries where poverty is at a significant level. The needs of children who are not in school cannot be served by focusing efforts on schools.

There is no doubt that the objection is valid. Support for non-formal human rights education program has to be sustained, even increased especially in countries that are becoming more open to the discussion of human rights. Non-governmental organizations that are at the forefront in this field need adequate assistance not only on financial terms but in terms of legal and governmental policy and program support. Moreover, in schools stories, games, poems, songs; shared meals and food; celebrations and festivals; visits to markets, museums, temples, churches, mosques and other cultural places; and inviting parents to school should be employed in teaching human rights.
