This book compares ways in which children's rights in, to, and through education, formal and informal, are viewed and implemented in a variety of social and political contexts, aiming to shed light on how policies and practices can improve equal access to high quality education in an environment which is respectful of children's rights. Chapters focus on understanding the opportunities for and challenges of addressing children's rights to participation and to inclusion. Authors draw from a variety of disciplines, including critical and cultural studies of childhood, and bring internationally comparative policy perspectives to share nuanced and contrasting examples of ways in which a rights-based approach to education might empower children and youth. The book deepens and complicates research on children's education rights, and will contribute to courses in comparative education, childhood studies, education policy, and children's rights.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The editors have assembled a thought-provoking and intellectually engaging collection of essays that demonstrate the benefits that flow from the adoption of a rights-based approach to education in a range of diverse social, cultural, linguistic, and religious contexts. This book deserves the attention of anyone genuinely concerned with the realisation of a child's right to education." (John Tobin, Professor, University of Melbourne, a leading children's rights expert)
"Be aware! Education and children's rights are taken seriously in this book. The topics, important and frequently controversial, are illuminated by research, expertise and passion - with particular emphasis on social justice, inclusion, evolving capacities, child agency, and best interests. A rigorous exploration and debate of critical issues is launched and encouraged. The reader is likely to strongly agree and disagree at numerous points - and to be stimulated to do more - all to the good in finding the way forward." (Stuart N. Hart; Deputy Director, International Institute for Child Rights and Development; Co-Director of Child Rights Education for Professionals (CRED-PRO))
