digitaljourney: This is very closely linked to my graduate thesis, which was focused on teaching children’s rights and citizenship in the classroom. It’s also an informative and interesting read if you’re in education. Whenever I’m trying to promote a program like this, the response from schools is generally hesitation due to time constraints. But, as the article indicates, it actually saves...
