According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. Article 26 further affirms that

(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

(2) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms….

These basic and inalienable rights are guaranteed to all humans, regardless of their nationality, locality, language, religion, ethnic origin, or any other status (Article 2). Prioritising education and ensuring that every individual has access to great educational opportunities throughout their lives, is a unifying objective for humanity. It requires that society, government, and stakeholders recognize the value and significance of education for the individual, the community, and national development.

Even though it may look alike, schooling and education are not synonyms.

  • Schooling comprises transferring knowledge in comprehensible sections that can be kept and then used so that students can pass examinations and obtain certifications.
  • Education entails interacting with others and the world. The guidance should be done from the “being position” instead of the “having position”. “Having” looks to objects and material possessions whereas “being” is concerned with shared experience and productive activity. In “being” mode, we interact with everything around us rather than attempting to dominate and control it. 


This is a very important point of view to be taken into account since children learn by actively participating with their social and physical environments, not passively absorbing knowledge. They learn from other people, not because they are being taught, but because people are doing and talking about interesting things.

When interacting, educators, pedagogues, or teachers must be respectful, informed and wise. The educational process is based on a fundamental respect for truth, others, oneself, and the world. It is an attitude or state of mind that translates into real behaviour, such as how we treat people. We look to teachers and educators as experts, and we want them to use their knowledge to assist students learn. When assisting them, wisdom is mandatory because the task here is to be able to help scholars to make good judgements about problems and situations.

Education is forward-looking and hopeful. It looks to change for the better. In the end, our efforts to facilitate learning must be evaluated in terms of their ability to promote flourishing and participation in life. The purpose and reward of learning is the ongoing potential for growth.

Happy education day to all of ours teachers!
