UN Expert Praises Nicaragua Free Ed

Filed under: global islands,nicaragua — admin @ 5:35 am

Managua, May 19 — UN special rapporteur on the Right to Education Vernor Munoz applauded the Sandinista government´s efforts to guarantee free education in Nicaragua.

“Whenever we pay money to enter to schools, we are hindering the human right to education,” stated Munoz.

The UN expert slammed international financial organizations, and particularly the World Bank, for not recognizing education as a human right.

“It is unacceptable that a bank manage the destination of education in the world. That´s like putting a mechanic in charge of the surgery department of a hospital,” he said.

According to the UN rapporteur, nations are obliged to guarantee people the right to education and adapt educational programs to the students´ needs.
