Topic 4 Ways of Including Children’s Rights into the Educational Paradigm

The ideal way to include Children’s Rights into an educational paradigm would be to collaborate and co-elaborate a pedagogical product that would bring together many disciplines from different areas, treating the matter as a common deal instead of a fragmented piece of knowledge (Louviot, Moody & Darbellay, 2019).

Children’s Rights can be taught through different subjects and approaches. You can teach a pupil on the historical part of the UE Convention and where these rights came from, utilizing civil/social attitude teaching on how to prevent the application of Children’s Rights into the real-world context. This is one of the many examples of CRE application in schools through a transdisciplinary context.

From an interdisciplinary point of view, it is possible to integrate Children’s Rights Education into links between the many aspects addressed to Children’s Rights and Human’s Rights overall.

Teaching Children’s Rights to both children and adults could be a key factor in guaranteeing that these are known and that all children can enjoy the same rights, living in a more healthy and equal way, with the help of all social actors around them. Education could help children realize that they have those rights and make them aware of what they are entitled to, regarding their many different situations and backgrounds. The CRE can also contribute as an awareness-raising factor.
