Answer for the question: Week 1

September 5, 2007

“Everyone has the right to education… Education shall be directed to the full development of human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.” (art.26 – Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

As we can read in the human rights text, right to education is a basic human right. The problem is that the people breaks this human right constantly.

I think education would be and incorruptible human right because educated people are free people. Free people cant take the control of his life and will be more happines.

Other reason for my think is that the people wants education as a basic necssity. In Brasil ,against bad this on this country (Iliterates can´t vote), when Lula Da Silva comes to be a governor, in a town whose name i can´t remember (I hear this on a conference of health education, I think remember Portobelo but I´m not sure)  Mayor, take 2% of municipal founds for wich people decide what things needs on the town. After they had water and medecines, they decided make an school and library.

It´s curious. It´s the triangle of Maslow:

Maslow Pyramid

This is a pyramid with the necessity of the people. High level on the pyramid becomes in a well being for the people, but if yo want go up you need stronge education. Iliterates frecuently can´t rise the 3th level: Belonging.

The second part of question:

it is necessary to *mandate* education through a certain age or level?

I think that not but it´s a good idea from the governs give a financial help for the people who decide take a strong and high education.

For example, Finland. The students on Finland have a little salary while they are estuding. This fact foments the education and the education becomes in a social benefits for all population.

Many governs have a problem with the money for students sallary but it´is because they don´t know  that education will become in a money for the people and for the govern.

    The “right” to education is certainly a nice sounding idea. However, let us ask ourselves what happens if an educator refuses to educate for some reason.

    Do we then force the educator to continue to teach someone because of the someone’s “right” to education?

    I think not. And therefore it would be a far better right to seek education, which is what really denied to individuals, through discouragement, insults, etc.

    The right to seek and get education if an educator consents to teach would be a far better and realistic right.

    The rights to get education, shelter, food all lead to the formation of a totalitarian state. And we know what happens when dictators take over.

    Basically, one’s rights should not violate the rights of others. It is this balance that needs to be sought in any declaration of rights.

    hya wat are the effects about it

  5. Unfortunately, the “right” to education necessarily brings with it the money stolen from another to pay for it.

    What about the “right” to keep what one has earned? I have six children to educate; I have neither the desire nor the means to educate anyone else’s.
