The Right to Education in Protracted Conflict: Teachers' Experiences in Non-Formal Education in Colombia
Vega, Laura; Bajaj, Monisha
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v14 n3 p358-373 2016
The challenges of ensuring the right to education are numerous, especially when working with marginalised populations in fragile contexts. Despite having the legislation, strong constitutional support, and even educational innovations designed to guarantee the right to education, a major gap exists in Colombia between political intentions and the reality in flexible non-formal educational models designed for children affected by conflict. This article highlights the experiences of teachers working in this context amidst limitations in the programme design and, often, inadequate training and support. This article explores the prospects of and challenges to guaranteeing the right to education amidst fragility.
