Summary:
Ensuring access to education for Tanzanian children has always been central to the government policy since independence. National development plans and policies have focused on education to increase productivity and growth. Tanzania’s commitments and efforts towards education have further been strengthened by global initiatives that have recently taken place. There are several international instruments, to which Tanzania as a signatory requires the government to provide free and compulsory education. Some of these instruments are the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (Article 26); International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (Article 13 and 14); Convention on the Rights of the Child (Article 28); Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (Article 10); Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Article 24); UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education (Articles 4); ILO Convention 182 on Worst Forms of Child Labour (Preamble, Articles 7 and 8); African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (Article 11); African Youth Charter (Articles 13 and 16). (Right to Education Project: 2014). Notes on the Article 13 and 14 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights clearly defines what is required from each nation (Rights to Education Project: 2014, 1).
