“Life is a precious gift given by the almighty”. However, this world is full of struggle and misery for millions of people. As they strive hard to make the ends meet, their race for survival continues. Every year December 10th is celebrated as the ‘International Human Rights Day’. It is the perfect time to reiterate and remind ourselves about our roles in creating a better world around us.
Right to Education- An attempt to make education accessible for all:
It is rightly believed that education has the potential to transform the life of an individual. Hence, it is one of the most important components of human rights. Article 26 in the ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ states the right to education as one of the basic rights for all. As an important component of human rights, this article declares educational opportunities equally accessible for all. We all know that the accessibility of education is a cause of concern for millions of students in the world. However, the condition of education in many parts of the world is quite serious.
Education in Africa- The Real Picture:
Right to education enjoys the status of being a universally accepted human right, but students in Africa are deprived of it in large numbers. Shocking figures of adolescent out of school population in Africa show a pitiable condition of youth in the school-going age. It is estimated that 60% population between the age group of 15 and 17 are not in school. Amongst these issues, the case of girl education is even more serious. Around 9 million girls between the age groups of 6 to 11 were never sent to school (as per UNESCO statistics). This data highlights that the weightage of out of school girl population is 4% more in comparison with the boys.
Issues in the Middle East (Iraq, Yemen, etc.)
Conflicts and crisis situations have deprived several students of their right to education in these parts of the world. UNICEF has disclosed that over 3 million students were impacted because of these issues. Yet another case of man-made disasters and violation of human rights.
Out of school children in the Philippines
Another report highlights the issue of school education in Philippines. Like many other parts of the world, girl students are more prone to dropping out than the boys in Philippines.
Out of school children rates in Europe and North America
Europe and North America are no exceptions to this issue. 1.7% of students of primary school age were out of school in these regions. This data is even worse for upper secondary school age. It goes as high as 6.7% by 2018.
Alarming rates of out of school students shows that millions of our children are still deprived of their ‘Right to Education’
Today, the world has become a global village, it is now the time to look for solutions
As we celebrate ‘International Human Rights Day’, it is important to live the idea of equality rather than just believing it. With technology-based education, an alternative learning space can be created for students who cannot attend a physical school.
