Children and Work: Rights to Become Creative and Productive
David G. Gil
Abstract This essay reviews adverse consequences of contemporary modes of work, child rearing, and schooling for human development and the quality of life, and for the unfolding of the creative and productive capacities of children.It suggests that these consequences could be ameliorated, but not overcome at their roots, when the recently adopted United Nations Convention cm the Rights of the Child enters into force. The essay also discusses changes in work and education which should facilitate human development, creativity and productivity,and indicates ways in which educators could advance such changes.
