Everyone wants kids to be safe in school — even us parents of the “bad” kids. But punitive approaches have high costs: Instead of being helped, misbehaving kids are pushed out. Schools need to try something else.
In this lesson, we explore the issue of children’s rights around the world. Teachers can begin with an overview that introduces Ms. Yousafzai and Mr. Satyarthi, and their work. Then students can do further research into global education, child labor, modern-day slavery and related topics.
