OpenEd Week 1: Right to Education a Human Right?

Jennifer Maddrell, Designed to Inspire, Sept 03, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

If I could type better I would have offered my own thoughts on David Wiley's opening question in his Open Education course: "In your opinion, is the "right to education" a basic human right? Why or why not? In your opinion, is open *access* to free, high-quality educational opportunity sufficient, or is it necessary to *mandate* education through a certain age or level?" But my wrist is in a splint (and my knee is bruised and I have a black eye) as a result of a bicycle accident on Saturday. So I'll link to the responses offered by Jennifer Maddrell, Jim Groom, Brian Lamb, and some commentary from D'Arcy Norman that I especially agree with.
