WHAT CAN THE SCHOOL SAY ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS.
BROUDY, HARRY S.
THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE SCHOOLS' EFFORTS TO TEACH STUDENTS ABOUT THEM. "RIGHTS" ARE WHAT RATIONAL BEINGS PERCEIVE AS PART OF THEIR HUMAN NATURE AND ARE A CONCOMITANT OF THE ABILITY TO THIMK AND IMAGINE. TO BE COMPLETELY HUMAN, MAN MUST STIVE TO ACHIEVE OR MAINTAIN THESE RIGHTS. HOWEVER, SCHOOLS ARE SOMEWHAT HINDERED IN THEIR EFFORTS TO TEACH RIGHTS BY THEIR FEAR OF PHILOSOPHICAL ABSOLUTES AND BY SOCIETY'S OBVIOUS FLOUTING OF THESE RIGHTS. NEVERTHELESS, IN TEACHING ABOUT THEM SCHOOLS MIGHT CAPITALIZE ON THE RESPECT WHICH MANY PEOPLE HOLD FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND ON A CONSENSUS AMONG SCHOLARS ON THE MEANING OF HUMANITY. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "PHI DELTA KAPPAN," VOLUME 47, NUMBER 9, MAY 1966. (NH)
