"The right to education includes not only the right to access education but also the right to quality education.”
Is it time to define students' right to a quality education?
Every young person in Canada has a right to education, but currently there is no way of knowing how that right is being upheld and no way to know if all children and young people are able to access a quality education.
People for Education – working with experts from across Canada, and with the support from the Maytree Foundation – is going to change that.
Over the course of the next year, we will be holding consultations with students and adults from across the country and across sectors on a new Right to Education framework. The goal of the framework is to define education rights in Canada and provide a mechanism to help ensure that all of Canada’s students are adequately prepared to participate in work, life, and society.
