Education Rights and Minorities. Report.
Beyani, Chaloka; And Others
This report not only examines the role of mass education in the integration of minorities into the society, but also examines the importance to minorities of the cultural transmission of their values and world view recognized by international standards. The general human right to education implies certain duties of the state under the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations. The chapters in this volume present various aspects of the challenge, including: (1) "State Education and Minority Rights" (Crispin Jones); (2) "International Standards" (Patrick Thornberry); (3) "The Prerequisites of Education" (Chaloka Beyani); (4) "Language and Education" (Crispin Jones and Rachel Warner); (5) "Aspects of Religion in Secular Education" (Jagdish Gundara); (6) "The Role of the Curriculum" (Sarah Graham-Brown); and (7) "Directions for the Future." A companion piece profile, entitled "Exchange and Encouragement," focuses on the related field of indigenous peoples, specifically the Ainu of Japan. This report addresses a global issue with emphasis upon the need for further research and debate on the topic. (EH)
