Education Is a Human Right 1998: El Barometer on Human and Trade Union Rights in the Education Sector.
Education International, Brussels (Belgium).
In many countries, often at great personal cost, teachers and education support staff are at the forefront of the struggle for basic trade union and human rights. This book acknowledges their contributions. It also draws inspiration and hope from their efforts to show that a commitment to the interests of every child, to quality education, and to effective trade union organization can make a difference. The report focuses on the extent to which the right to education is available to children and adults, and the extent educators enjoy fundamental human and trade union rights set out in the major international declarations and conventions. Child labor in every country where Education International has members (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America, and the Caribbean) is highlighted. The report contends that the juxtapositioning of access to education, child labor, and trade union rights for teachers and other education staff reflects their interrelationship and the conviction that progress in one area cannot be sustained without progress in the others.
