The dawn and development of the human right to education is a new chapter in the History of Education and has given rise to an International Education Law that constitutes the present highest normative source for education. It should be recognised and studied as a new juridical and educational discipline, source of the principles of legitimacy and quality of education as a human right and global public good.

The right to education carries a revolutionary significance, reflecting the ethical revolutionary significance of human rights and of the rights of the child. The Revolution of the Right to Education may be condensed into the concept of Rightful Education, understood as education consistent with the normative integrity of the right to education, which may be systematised in Principles of Ethics of the Right to Education, from which stem Educational Rights.

Education is the greatest human power and responsibility. It is not a magical power, but the human species has no greater power to take care of itself – of its emotions, sentiments, ideas, ideals, destiny…

The book is a valuable reference source for researchers and students in Education, Law and Human Rights. 


Author: Dr. A. Reis Monteiro has a PhD from the University of Paris 8 and from the University of Lisbon in the field of International Education Law.

After having taught at different school levels, he began his academic career at the University of Lisbon. He teaches the right to education at the Human Rights Centre of the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra since 1999. He has published numerous books and other writings in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English, in the fields of human rights, rights of the child, right to education, history of education, theory of education, and the teaching profession. Right to Education is his second book with Ethics International Press.
