Why are education for caring and civics education important? by Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding(APCEIU)

Everyone has the right to education...... Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups. The education of the child shall be directed to the development of respect for the child’s parents, his or her own cultural identity, language and values, for the national values of the country from which he or she may originate, and for civilizations different from his or her own. It is important to teach children that there are fundamental human values that transcend religion, cultural and ethnic boundaries the duty to treat others with respect and dignity and to do unto others as you wish to be treated yourself.
