Children's Rights in Education: An Historical Perspective

pp. 345—358

Abstract:This article briefly traces the major historical themes of the children’s rights movement related to education, and clarifies the manner in which they have supported progress toward dignity and person status for children. The meaning and significance of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child are considered, particularly as they give direction to and challenge education. Several conditions for desired future advances are discussed, with suggested roles for school psychology.
