Reviews

'Children's Rights in Education provides important insights into the current state of children's rights internationally and succeeds in raising a range of important questions of interest to practitioners working with children across different fields. It would be useful for those seeking to develop better awareness of the legal and political machinations in establishing children's rights agendas in exploring key underlying themes and would be a useful reference for work in this area.'
