Tensions and Dilemmas About Education in Human Rights in Democracy

Journal of Moral Education 23 (3):251-259 (1994)
Abstract
Abstract Incorporating human rights into the school curriculum is fraught with difficulties and tensions. This holds in the ?normal? case, but even more so under conditions when human rights education is initiated in order to counteract the effects and the terror of a military dictatorship. Experiences of this kind are described, as encountered when initiating a human rights education project in Chile and participating in related efforts in some other Latin American countries. A major tension producing question is about the place of human rights in the curriculum: whether they are to become a separate subject?matter or to be addressed in all subjects
