Children

As per the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted in 1948 "Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit” (Article 26).
