Conditions Favorable to the Realization of the Right to Education: Issues and Implications for Aboriginal Peoples, by Charlotte Henay
Access to education is very often presented as a condition for realizing the right to education almost to the extent that we tend to lump the two together. However, despite the fact that some people occasionally tend to simplify this issue to promote a hidden agenda, it is actually much more complex. From the outset, we state that access to compulsory schooling and the right to education are two very different things. The former does not automatically guarantee that the latter is fully enforced, at least as far as native peoples are concerned. Experience acquired in a Native-American school setting in Canada tends to confirm this assertion.
