Human Rights Education


Human Rights Education

Protecting the dignity of all people and respecting fundamental human rights are the foundation of a democratic society. Osaka Prefecture is aiming to create a society in which human rights are respected. This will be achieved if we all actively think and act as individuals and engage in a ceaseless effort. Education is irreplaceably essential to this process.

The Osaka Prefectural Board of Education is promoting education on a range of human rights issues including those relating to children, dowa, gender equality, persons with disabilities and foreign residents in Japan, nurturing an awareness and attitude that: 1) tries to protect individuals’own and others’human rights, 2) respects differences in culture and customs, and 3) participates in and contributes to society.
