Hello everyone, Just a thought: The issue of teaching of human rights just as another subject may be what we need -- the subject then becomes the norm rather than the exception to the rule. If it is taught well, with depth and understanding of the issues, then let's go for it. There is also considerable work that is done on the grass roots level (non-formal education) that must be incorporated into the classroom -- to give the students/teachers a better grounding in the subject. I definitely agree that by involving different models of teaching to the teachers - including experience based learning - will the teachers appreciate non traditional ways of approaching the subject matter.
