Friday 23 February

SECTION27 has developed the second edition of the Basic Education Rights Handbook. The Basic Education Rights Handbook has been updated in collaboration with partner organisations, Equal Education Law Centre, Equal Education, The Centre for Child Law, The Legal Resources Centre and the International Commission of Jurists. The Basic Education Rights Handbook is a legal literacy tool that serves to empower communities, school governing bodies, principals, teachers and learners to understand education law and policy, to know when learners’ rights have been violated and what steps are required to protect learners’ rights. It is a valuable resource in providing information on case developments and legal frameworks in key areas of education law and policy.
