The Right to Education: Breaking Down the Barriers

University of Glasgow via FutureLearn


Find out how to ensure inclusion and equity in education

Number 4 on the the UN’s list of global universal sustainable development goals (SDG) is “Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning”. Despite this, 59 million primary-school age children were out of school in 2013. So, does education for all, really mean all? What are the barriers to participating in education? How do you include “all” in the classroom? This online course will answer these and other questions, and help you join the movement to get children the world over into education.

There are no prior requirements to join this course.

While the Educators themselves aren’t available to facilitate this run, we encourage you to engage with other learners and there are opportunities to do this throughout the course.

    Sarah Scanlon completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    The course was very interesting and gave lots of great resources for further reading - which actually means you spend longer on the course if you want to read the additional sources.
    I really enjoyed the future learn platform and learnt from the many comments and discussions from all over the world too! It was very easy to get involved with and I feel I really learnt taking this course about all the many different barriers around the world to education.
