Rights Respecting Schools and Your Child

When we send our children to school, we hope their experience will be both inspiring and educative. UNICEF Canada’s Rights Respecting Schools initiative helps schools provide these experiences for children.

The initiative uses the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a basis for enhancing inclusive, participatory and respectful school culture.

Children learn about the importance of rights and the responsibilities that accompany them. They come into early contact with the universal ideals of respect for oneself and for others, in the school community and in an interdependent world.
