Why UN is not allowed in school

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child | Children's rights

In 1979 the UN decided that children need their own rights. Your well-being should be specially protected. But the UN member states discussed for a long time what the rights might look like. It was not until 10 years later that it was clear: For example, children should get clean water and enough to eat, and they should be able to go to school and to the doctor. Children have the right to information and free time.

54 children's rights

In total, the UN members agreed on 54 rules. These rules have been summarized in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Convention comes from Latin and means 'agreement' or 'agreement'. To date, with the exception of the USA, all members of the UN have signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, the poor countries are often unable to adhere to them because, for example, there is not enough clean water and enough food available. In Germany, the Convention on the Rights of the Child has been in force since 1992. At that time, the German Bundestag voted in favor of the introduction of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Not a real law

The children's rights convention is also not a real law and therefore no one can be punished who does not respect children's rights. Even so, the convention is not useless. It keeps the countries that have signed it up to the goal that the rights of children must be respected.
There are also aid organizations such as 'terre des hommes' that campaign for children's rights all over the world.
