The resource addresses issues of why NZ schools and centres should implement human rights based education (HRBE), what is in it for schools and centres, and results of HRBE drawn from international research. New Zealand's important role in the formation of international human rights standards is elaborated on in this resource, as well as our current failures in human rights-related challenges: for example, a significant tail of under-achievement in particular social groups, problems of student behaviour, teacher burn-out and lack of human rights knowledge.
