A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Educational
Proposed by: Tinhampton
Believing that it ought to promote the right of parents to direct their children's education (rather than hindering it, i.e. by requiring homeschoolers to seek teacher supervision or completely outlawing homeschooling), the General Assembly resolves, with immediate effect, that:
Subject to prior and standing international law, member states and their political subdivisions ("members") must respect, in law and in practice:
the right of parents, carers and guardians ("parents") of children to direct and guarantee, with regard to their sincerely-held moral beliefs, the education of their children, and
the right of children to receive a full-time education which is adequate and appropriate to their age and ability.
Members are strongly urged to respect the right of adults to receive an education as described in Article a(ii).
This Compact must not be interpreted to necessarily require members to fully fund or partially subsidise schools; those judgments are reserved to the individual member states.
This Compact must not be interpreted to forbid members from requiring parents to enrol their children into a school, provided that they have a reasonable belief that those parents have failed to guarantee that their children receive an education as described in Article a(ii).
Debate this resolution in the General Assembly forum.
The General Assembly resolution Commercial Arbitration Recognition was passed 10,131 votes to 4,015, and implemented in all WA member nations.
Proposals are suggestions for resolutions. Any WA member nation with at least two endorsements may make a proposal, which, if it gains the necessary support, will become a resolution.
