...The Right to Education – A Global Perspective

This saying of Nelson Mandela reveals a lot about the importance of education as a mean of achieving the changes we want to see in the world. Realizing the importance of education is highly significant for the nation and the world as a whole; however, giving equaleducation opportunities to people within specific countries and around the world remains a challenge for the global society. In order to overcome, or at least ease, such challenges, the right to education has been a subject of matter of international law, as well as state constitutions.

However, not all the children around the world are not lucky enough to receive an education. There are various reasons why children cannot go to school. The main reason of missing out on an education is poverty. Poor families cannot afford to pay for school expenses such as books and uniforms. This leads to another problem:; parents make their children work to support their families. Therefore, these kids – especially girls- spend time at home cooking and doing other chores, helping their families,. wWhereas boys help their fathers on the farm, or working at different jobs. In addition to poverty, early marriage is another reason why kids cannot go to school. Sofia, from Tanzania, says that “My father tells me that, my main responsibilities are those of a future wife and mother, and that I won’t need an education for that.” (Save the Children) Early marriage is a global issue which can be considered as the violation of children rights.
