Honduras ratifies the Convention against Discrimination in Education
In September 2013, Honduras became the hundredth State party to the Convention against discrimination in Education.
This instrument, as well as the Recommendation against discrimination in education, which celebrated their fiftieth anniversary in 2010, express the fundamental principles of non-discrimination and equality of educational opportunities. As such, they cover the right to education in its various dimensions.
The Convention and Recommendation reflect UNESCO’s mission to promote and support collaboration among nations to “advance the ideal of equality of educational opportunities without regard to race, sex or any distinctions, economic or social.”
The Convention will enter into force with respect to Honduras in December.
