Abstract [en]

In this paper I show how Article 26 of the Declaration of Human Rights developed from its earlier versions, including basic ideas for education, to aims and purposes, and its final adaptation incorporating further democratic ideals. I also show that the Declaration ""as a common standard of achievement"" heralded by the General Assembly of the United Nations is a principled statement of restriction on government intervention in education, on the one hand, and a principled positive statement that those affected by state-governed education should be able to choose education for their children on the other.
