When States have ratified or acceded to international treaties that recognise the right to education, they must guarantee and implement this right at the national level.

States are strongly encouraged to incorporate the right to education into their constitutions and to implement it further through the adoption of laws and policies.

While the right to education is universally recognised, implementation at national level may vary according to the needs of each State. For example, curricula may reflect cultural and linguistic needs.
