Human Rights Education in Schools

Human rights education is delivered at the high school level through our education project developed for students and teachers in Jamaican schools. The content and nature of the school’s programme help prepare young people to become rounded and productive adult citizens by fostering attitudes that will lead to good practices and respect for human rights. ‘Cry for Justice’, a 22-minute human rights education DVD-Video produced by Jamaicans for Justice, serves as a teacher’s guide to the project’s format, and students and teachers are encouraged to be ambassadors for human rights by sharing human rights information and knowledge with other students, teachers, family members, friends and the community. Engaging youth in human rights dialogue is a proactive approach to improving Jamaica’s human rights environment and creating healthier, safer communities in which to live and prosper.
