The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a foundational statement for the Humanist Society. It is distressing that many children grow up without knowing that they have human rights and therefore are vulnerable to abuse. We support getting human rights into schools. The Society is also a friend of Victorian Association for Philosophy in Schools. This is an excellent way of educating young people. The way into human rights is explained in an article by Michelle Sowey: ‘Philosophy for Children: A reflective approach to human rights education‘.
