Right to education

Individuals and societies all benefit from education.  It is a vital part of social and economic development, so that people may achieve their full potential and contribute fully to the well-being of their communities.

If you or your children are not receiving an adequate education, you may well have rights under the laws of your country to demand that the state address this deficit.  In this guide we outline the main sources of rights in this area, and explain practical ways in which you may seek to enforce them.

Scope of this guide

If you or your child are not receiving an adequate education, the laws of your country may give you the right to demand that this be addressed.  In this guide we cover the following issues:

  • what are your rights to demand education for you or for your children?
  • who can enforce rights to education?
  • against whom may rights to education be enforced?
  • if you have to go to court to have your rights to education upheld, where should you do this?
  • if you start a court action, what procedure will you need to follow?
  • are there alternatives to court action?

If you are wondering whether litigation might help a problem you have related to education, a video guide which may help, produced by a UK based  NGO on education is  here.
