"Teachers should respect students, listen to them"

The past 12 years they have been educating educationalists worldwide on children's rights through the training programme "Child Rights, Classroom and School Management", sponsored by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).

Per Wickenberg, director of studies at the Sociology of Law Department, Lund University, recently came back from Kozhikode in India where he and his team were on a 10-day follow-up workshop.

Ulf Leo, Agneta F Wångdahl and Bodil Rasmusson at Lund University and Lena Andersson at Malmö University are the other mentors of the training program.

The team has provided training for 630 teachers from 25 countries in 21 batches to initiate changes in their respective countries.

”Teachers in schools should be good role models and should learn to work in a child-friendly mode by respecting them, listening to them and giving them voice in classrooms and in turn in society,” says Per Wickenberg  to The New Indian Express.

On 20 of November the world observed Universal Children’s Day, marking the 25th anniversary of the United Nation’s Child Rights Convention (CRC).
