Recognizing Education Rights in India and the United States: All Roads Lead to the Courts?
The approaches of United States and India take disparate form: India has recognized the right to education and is attempting to implement the right, whereas the United States has not formally recognized the right to education itself but has acknowledged a limited right to educational opportunity, but has implemented some sort of right to education unequally by relying on the states to guarantee and implement some kind of remedy. This paper aims to evaluate the American and Indian approaches towards the right to education. Section II discusses the interrelatedness of social and economic and civil and political rights and the right to education in international law. Section III examines constitutionalism and the right to education. Section IV reviews the right to education in America. Section V examines the right to education in India.
