General Assembly Resolution # 77
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #59 “The Right to Education” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Educational) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly of the World Assembly,
COMMENDING the efforts of Resolution #59 "The Right to Education" for attempting to promote education "as a contributing factor to self and community betterment";
NOTING that clause 1-a: "Mandates that Member States shall: Not restrict the pursuit of learning for its citizens";
ALSO NOTING that clause 3-f: "Emphasises that this Resolution does not affect a member state's right to have: Any level of government to control the education system";
BELIEVING that both of these clauses, taken separately, allow for dangerously hyperbolic interpretations, simultaneously permitting citizens to pursue education in hazardous subjects, such as the construction of illicit arms or materials, and permitting nations to control any aspect of education systems, such as curricula and restrictions on who may be taught;
FURTHER BELIEVING that these clauses are internally contradictory, severely hampering Resolution #59's ability to provide citizens in WA nations with any of the rights it seeks to protect;
UNDERSTANDING that it is in the interests of the World Assembly to strike out contradictory legislation that become legally ambiguous;
CONVINCED that serious issues like the right of citizens to receive education can and should be approached by legislation more forthright in its application;
REPEALS Resolution #59 "The Right to Education".
