A question

The United States is a member of the United Nations and claims to support the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Man. I question how the United States resolves its position on Article 26.

Article 26.¹

(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.
(2) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace.
(3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

Do they in America today?

  1. The United Nations. (1948). Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

  1. Many supporters of school choice would like to direct their tax dollars to non-governmental educators as they are not confident in their abilities to educate their children.
