Chapter Summary

The interpretation advocated in this chapter strives to provide a justification for a somewhat different core of the right to education. There are some aspects, however, that are discussed. One is the requirement that the core content of the right to education should be convergent worldwide. Another aspect that needs some ventilation is whether individuals above compulsory school age shall be regarded as belonging to the core or to the periphery of educational rights-holders. The right to education is conceptualised by dividing it into four key components: 1) the right to basic skills, 2) the right to language skills, 3) the right to vocational skills and 4) the right to cultural skills. The chapter focuses on international human rights standards that provide for formal instruction of these four elements to individuals above compulsory school age.
