This concluding chapter argues that a human rights-based approach to education offers a promising framework for identifying and addressing the obstacles that stand in the way of minorities and disadvantaged groups enjoying equal rights to quality education. It should serve as a blueprint for laws, policies, and programmes geared towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 — universal access to quality education. The diversity of perspectives featured in this book consider these obstacles from a variety of viewpoints, illuminating more fully the complexities that need to be considered in order to successfully overcome them. These conversations need to continue across countries in a way that brings together all the actors and stakeholders in the education system to work in partnership towards a rights-oriented vision of quality education for all children.
