Dear Student Friends from
all over the World,
This is a call! A call to go beyond our local and national scaled conditions and to meet on a shared platform at a macro level! We see the necessity to share our views, to interact with each other and to articulate our benefi ts. It is clear that we have enough reasons for such an interaction. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that humanity is a whole entity; however, the economic, social and political crises as well as the destruction of nature are equally valid examples for the previous claim.
This is an Invitation! We can experience that students from all around the world are listing their demands and dreaming for a better, more just future regarding their natural right to education. All these efforts are precious, and their permanence would mean a great success. We, the Students eBook Project aim such a permanence and take a step to become a shared voice on a global scale.
Because of this reason, we have managed to come together due to our members who participate from Latin America, Africa, Europe, Oceania and Asia. We kindly invite you and would like to see you in our ranks!
The title of the eBook is:
“STUDENTS’ VIEWS – Human Rights to Education in Times of Covid-19 and other Crises”
With this in mind, we would like to invite you and your organization to be a part of this mission by writing an article for our new eBook. This eBook will be a co-publication with all students’ unions which accept our invitation. This eBook will focus on students’ perspectives on the following topics:
1. Ideas and suggestions on the Extension of the Human Right to Education
2. Student protagonism and social movements
3. Colonialism, International policy, Economy, Independence
4. National education policies and current education reforms
5. Teacher training and Human Rights
6. Black lives matter and other antiracist or antifascist movements
7. Covid-19 and it’s consequences to education
8. 100 years of Paulo Freire and his legacy
The desired length of the article is minimum 2,500 words and maximum 7,000 (including references). Deadline for receiving these articles is the end of march 2021.
We would like to hear personal perspectives/experiences with socio-political changes affecting education, the current pandemic, its psychological impact on students, mass movements etc. in your country. With this wide range of thematic areas, possibilities are endless!
We are in constant contact with professors, scholars, UN, UNESCO etc. so that we can secure funds in order to get physical copies of this eBook published. With a plethora of views on all these topics, we aim to understand global situation of accessibility to quality education better.
A further project could be the organization of an international scientifi c survey with students on the Extension of the Human Right to Education.
