Children's rights in education - transforming universal claims into New Zealand policy

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a study of how children’s rights’ issues regarding education are constructed in New Zealand policy. Using a conceptual framework of human rights theory – civil, political and social rights – children’s rights in education are analysed and discussed. By means of text analysis of 14 policy documents the study identified three major and five minor issues in education as being constructed as matters relating to rights of the child. The findings also indicate that the relation between education and children’s rights is mainly constructed as involving social rights of the child, and that issues that emphasise the child’s civil and political rights in education are few, and given little attention in policy.
