La Campaña Latinoamericana por el Derecho a la Educación (CLADE) ha sistematizado testimonios y sugerencias de educadores/as y estudiantes en contextos de encierro, y reunió estas reflexiones en la publicación El Derecho Humano a la Educación en contextos de encierro desde la perspectiva de sus sujetos.

Este documento pone en evidencia las recomendaciones y los pensamientos de estudiantes y docentes en contextos de encierro a partir de sugerencias y testimonios recopilados por medio de entrevistas con maestras/os y personas en privación de libertad de Bolivia, Brasil y Argentina. Estos diálogos se realizaron en visitas específicas realizadas por la CLADE en los últimos tres años, en el marco del proyecto Ampliando Voces – miradas y propuestas para la Educación de Personas Jóvenes y Adultas en la perspectiva de sus sujetos.

Las reflexiones presentadas en la publicación no son una muestra representativa de sus países, pero revelan una diversidad de situaciones que se deben tomar en cuenta para conocer la realidad de la educación en las cárceles e intervenir con políticas adecuadas y pertinentes para la realización del derecho a la educación de estas/os ciudadanas/os.

This report aims to present a brief overview of the ongoing privatisation processes in education in Brazil and its negative impacts on the achievement of the human right to education of children and adolescents.

This report, which complements a recent submission to the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) by the Brazilian National Association of Centers for the Defense of Child Rights (ANCED), cites evidence that education privatisation inhibits equity of access and participation, and reduces education to a commodity.

This report finishes by calling upon the Brazilian State to limit the role of the private sector in education, from preschool to higher education, and that the State itself should commit to ensuring the public provision of education through improved financing, regulation and governance enforcement mechanisms.

This present document, produced by the Brazilian Campaign for the Right to Education (Brazilian Campaign) and the NGO Ação Educativa, aims to present a brief overview of the ongoing privatization processes in education in Brazil and its negative impacts on the achievement of the human right to education of children and adolescents, as a contribution to the II Alternative Report on the Situation of the Rights of the Child in Brazil organized by the National Association of Centers for the Defense of Child Rights (Associação Nacional dos Centros de Defesa da Criança e do Adolescente - Anced).

This paper highlights key concluding observations adopted between 2014 and 2016 by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR), and the UN Committee on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) regarding the role of private actors in education in Brazil, Chile, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya, Morocco, Uganda and Zimbabwe. These add to more than 50 other concluding observations previously issued by these committees on the topic.

‘This study is about the impacts of strategic litigation on equal access to quality education in Brazil, India, and South Africa. It is intended to look beyond strategic litigation solely as a means to ensure equal access to education, and to examine the use and effectiveness of strategic litigation in advancing education quality once access is won. This study is the second in a series of four thematic studies undertaken by the Open Society Justice Initiative and independent experts in 2014-2016 to interrogate the impacts of strategic litigation as a catalyst for social change.’

Based upon Plan International's dataset of 1.4 million sponsored children, the report compares sponsored children with a disability to those without, from 30 countries worldwide. The report, produced in collaboration with London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, reveals that children with disabilities in developing countries are being held back from an education. The findings will help Plan International - and other researchers and organisations - to improve responses to the needs of children with disabilities, particularly their health and education.
