CADRE/NESRI: Bringing A Human Rights Vision to Public Schools: A Training Manual for Organizers

Downloadpdf

NESRI and CADRE Training manual introduces the concept of human rights, how they apply to the right to education in the US, and the ways in which human rights can be used as a framework for social change. This “Toolkit within a Toolkit” is a resource for advocates, organizers, community members, parents and youth interested in using human rights as a tool for improving public education in the United States. It contains workshops, web links and case studies that are easy to translate into your local organizing work.  Again, our standing belief is that education is a human right, as well as a civil right and tools within this comprehensive document, are framed within that perspective.
