initiatives-- and they are heard on important policy
decisions.
Teachers should know that they are accountable for their classrooms, and if
they are bored they need to teach out side of the box. Different incentives

began teaching in the first place.

Involvement
Teachers and schools must incorporate parents into their
curriculum and get them active in their childs education.
Research has shown that it is crucial to have this support
come early on in a childs life before they even start
primary school.
Communities must support all children with all backgrounds
and abilities, whether it be race, culture, gender, or disabilities,
in their education. It is every childs right to have access to an
education and it is within a community that the support for this
must happen.

media partners and other influential
members of society can advocate for
childrens educational rights .
Global initiatives such as non-traditional learning to supplement their formal
classroom learning Including mentoring programs between students and
community members. Research has found that learning happens through
communities and through teaching each other. Children can learn things
from their peers in their own community which will enhance and boost their
educational levels.
