The Human Rights Education Series
Education in human rights is itself a fundamental
human right and also a responsibility: the Preamble
of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

of society to ãstrive by teaching and
education to promote respect for these rights
and freedoms.ä Published by the Human Rights
Resource Center at the University of Minnesota
in partnership with the Stanley Foundation,
the Human Rights Education Series seeks to meet
this responsibility by providing resources for
the ever-growing body of educators and activists
seeking to build a culture of human rights in
the United States and throughout the world.
The HRE Series is edited by Nancy Flowers.

and America's Classrooms" insert are available
