ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Promoting Rights in Schools

Aimed at actively engaging parents, children, teachers, unions, communities and local civil society organisations in collectively monitoring and improving the quality of public education, PRS offers a set of practical tools that can be used as a basis for mobilisation, advocacy and campaigning.

PRS builds on education and human rights frameworks to describe an ideal school that offers quality education. Its methodology supports links between programme work at the school level and advocacy and policy efforts in national and international forums. The process is as important as the outcome: it is only through engaging all stakeholders in the process - from developing the charter to collecting and analysing the data and debating the findings - that we will promote greater awareness of what needs to change and how.

 We hope that this work will provide citizens with the unique ability to gather evidence on the state of their education system, enabling them to hold duty bearers accountable for developing inclusive and sustainable solutions to ensure quality learning for all children.
