GHEC 2016 - Global home education conference - Home Education: It’s A Right

Date :  du 09-03-2016 au 12-03-2016

Lieu :  Rio de Janeiro

Organisation : 
International Advisory Board with representatives from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Kenya, Mexico, the Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, and the United States

Programme : 
The GHEC 2016 is a three-day event that brings together those with an interest in freedom of education and home education in particular to provide a stimulating environment to gather the best cross-section of research and to cultivate a commitment to parent-directed education. Home education highlights the most crucial factors in the freedom of education discussion. Who is responsible for education? What role do parents play in the education of their children? To what extent is the state responsible for education of children?

      Human rights documents from international and regional bodies including the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union, and the Organization of American States have identified repeatedly that parents have a prior right to direct the education of their children. The Berlin Declaration, adopted at the GHEC 2012, catalogues these documents and each reference.
      Home education meets the need of families who are dissatisfied for various reasons—bullying, low academic standards, religious and philosophical convictions, among other motivations—with traditional education solutions. The one-size-fits-all reality of traditional schooling doesn’t fit everyone.
      As home education has increased in popularity, it has already been the subject of increasing social research. Numerous studies demonstrate that home educated students become responsible citizens who are productive members of society.
      The GHEC 2016 will provide a forum to cultivate awareness about home education, its legal framework, social and academic research, and practical experience around the world. The GHEC 2016 will also promote change, as the right of parents to direct the education of their children is challenged by governments around the world.
