Today, education is possibly the utmost important function of state and educational institutions and also the principle tool in awakening the child to cultural values, in formulating him for later professional training and in assisting him to adjust routinely to his setting. The key purpose of education and learning is to help children in understanding their own perspective groups and to develop admiration for their feelings and thoughts. Without education no children can understand the world and secure their rights. Education stimulates the realisation of the survival rights, development rights, protection rights and participation rights. The essential rights including the right to freedom of speech and expression and other rights cannot be cherished and fully enjoyed unless a citizen is educated and is aware of his self-dignity. Therefore, the right to life and dignity is most significant right of an individual, cannot be guaranteed unless the right to education complements it. Hence, education as a crucial right unlocks the enjoyment of other human rights. As per UDHR, education should be focused towards the full growth of the human behaviour and reinforce respect for human rights. And this aspect of achieving education helps them to enjoy a variety of, economic, political, and cultural opportunities and valued outcomes. Without education no children can understand the world and secure their rights.

Abstract


Today, education is possibly the utmost important function of state and educational institutions and also the principle tool in awakening the child to cultural values, in formulating him for later professional training and in assisting him to adjust routinely to his setting. The key purpose of education and learning is to help children in understanding their own perspective groups and to develop admiration for their feelings and thoughts. Without education no children can understand the world and secure their rights. Education stimulates the realisation of the survival rights, development rights, protection rights and participation rights. The essential rights including the right to freedom of speech and expression and other rights cannot be cherished and fully enjoyed unless a citizen is educated and is aware of his self-dignity. Therefore, the right to life and dignity is most significant right of an individual, cannot be guaranteed unless the right to education complements it. Hence, education as a crucial right unlocks the enjoyment of other human rights. As per UDHR, education should be focused towards the full growth of the human behaviour and reinforce respect for human rights. And this aspect of achieving education helps them to enjoy a variety of, economic, political, and cultural opportunities and valued outcomes. Without education no children can understand the world and secure their rights.
