|Title:||Claiming the right to quality education in Nicaragua||Authors:||Shier, Harry; Padilla, Martha Lidia; Molina Torres, Nohemí; Barrera López, Leonilda; Molina Torres, Moisés; Castillo, Zorayda; Ortiz Alvarado, Karen Alicia||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12252||Date:||2013||Online since:||2021-06-18T10:32:13Z||Abstract:||Education rights can be thought of as comprising rights to, in, and through education. The idea of quality in education is bound up with all three. On returning to power in 2007, the Nicaraguan Sandinista government outlawed all charges for public schools. This made education free of charge (though not free of costs) and represented significant progress toward fulfilling the right to education. However, with no corresponding budget increase, this move failed to address the issue of quality, so that rights in and through education were still major issues.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Peter Lang||Copyright (published version):||2013 Peter Lang||Keywords:||Education; Human rights; Quality of education; Nicaragua; CESESMA; La Cuculme||DOI:||10.3726/978-1-4539-1158-7||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Swadener, B.B., Lundy, L., Habashi, J., Blanchet-Cohen, N.
