Globally, educational curricula differ greatly since national and regional circumstances require a different emphasis on different subjects. In determining those emphases, parents often wish to have a say as well. The question for the committee to decide on is that of how much influence the parents are entitled to. On the one hand, the state is educating their children outside of their oversight and, therefore, has a direct influence on them; on the other hand, education is the perfect place to show them a wide variety of views on society, religion, and life. Note that “parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children”, according to Article 26.3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Council is tasked with finding the balance between those two values and providing a framework for human rights with regard to global education.
