Say no to discrimination in education! UNESCO is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education, the first international legally binding instrument covering the right to education extensively.
The year 2020 marks 60 years since the adoption by UNESCO’s General Conference of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education. This Convention highlights States’ obligations to ensure free and compulsory education, promotes equality of educational opportunity and prohibits any form of discrimination.
UNESCO is launching a global campaign ‘Say no to discrimination in Education’ in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Convention against Discrimination in Education beginning 10 December, Human Rights Day, and culminating on 14 December, the adoption date.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
