At best, the proposal before us would require member nations to show that some family which is home schooling fails to meet those goals before enroling someone in a school. It is unclear whether such goals can be met, as social integration in a pluralistic society inherently requires interactions with other people of dissimilar backgrounds, which is incompatible with home schooling. Ibid (citing the German Federal Constitutional Court's determination). Regardless, requiring member nations to show repeatedly is an unnecessary administrative burden.
At worst, the resolution possibly may not include such pluralistically oriented abilities in its undefined invocation of 'education'. Society writ large requires people of all backgrounds to work together peacefully. Enshrining into World Assembly law provisions which allow for direct conflict with admirable goals of inculcating democratic values of tolerance and inclusivity would be profound disappointment.
Outside the scope of compulsory schooling, it is also important to mention that the ability for a parent to direct their children is not prohibited by compulsory school attendance, as the resolution's preamble would have you believe. "Parent's right to educate their children would not be undermined by compulsory school attendance as the parents could educate their children before and after school, as well as at weekends". Ibid, 2.
With this in mind, the World Assembly Office recommends voting AGAINST "Pedagogical Freedoms".
Why was I tagged?!
Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.
