Vol.14 No.2 Disability And Public Basic School Infrastructure In Ghana
20 November, 2014

Education has been regarded in all societies and throughout human history both as an end in itself and as a means for the individual and society to grow. It is not only “the key to sustainable development,” but also “a fundamental human right (Bruns et al, 2003; World Bank, 2003). Consequently, the UN Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the 1959 Declaration of the Rights of the Child, the 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child (Rosensweig, 2002), among others, have reaffirmed this right and expressed commitment/lent credence to the indispensability of education in the preservation and enhancement of the inherent dignity of the human person (UNESCO, 2000). Numerous other declarations, conventions, covenants and constitutions also reiterate education’s status as a fundamental human right for all children (2003).
