Both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child list education as a fundamental human right.
Argue whether or not the United States has fulfilled these rights for the Hallway Hangers and the Brothers, incorporating at least three specific reasons for why you argue for or against this.
In your essay, you will need to discuss how the UN documents conceive of the right to an education and consider concepts such as (but not limited to):
equality vs. equity
social reproduction theory
Essays do not need to have a title page or abstract, but essays DO need to have your name, paper title, and date.
Essays must be between 1,000 and 2,000 words and must follow American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines for formatting, in-text citations, and references (on a separate reference page). (Links to an external site.)
Essays should use 12-point standard font (e.g. Times New Roman, Calibri, Arial, etc.), be double-spaced with 1-inch margins, have page numbers, and follow the conventions of formal writing.
