Position paper

The Australian Human Rights Commission welcomes the development of a national school curriculum, believing that the development of the curriculum is a unique opportunity to ensure all young Australians develop an understanding and appreciation for human rights.

While the existing draft Curriculum includes some elements that reflect human rights principles and values, it is the Commission’s view that this needs to be further strengthened.

This document outlines the Commission’s position on why human rights education is an important component of the Curriculum and our suggestions for how human rights education can be further strengthened in the Curriculum.
