The rights of children in school http://bit.ly/I7xYLh – In my work as an educational consultant, I have visited many schools all over the world. I have observed, in both traditional and alternative schools, that childrenâ€™s basic rights are often ignored. I believe that all human beings, no matter how old they are, must be granted the right to take care of their bodily needs. The childâ€™s body and whole organism are by nature determined to move and learn in specific ways. When we adults refuse to collaborate with the childâ€™s natural development, we create immense, unnecessary suffering. Even seemingly harmless experiences such as occasionally being denied the right to go to the toilet when needed, can leave trauma and health problems that are carried into adulthood.
