Abstract

Human rights and quality of general education has got political shades as well as educational. Political aspects of the human rights can be analyzed while discussing what has the priority when the conflict among social, economical, cultural and human is just interests occurs. While forming society’s value system, which is based on the human rights, and legislative (that is the exact requirement for the countries, which already are or strive to become the members of the EU/ EC) importance of qualitative education is given prominence. However, the rights do not exist of themselves. Firstly, the society has to know about them. So human, and especially children’s, rights have to be presented to the society and the triad of the Past- Present- Future, which is encoded in these rights, has to be revealed. The secret of this formula is that pupils have to know about the past if they want to create the future because it is the reason of the present. It is very important to be able to work here and now and to use all the possibilities when you create the future. Efficiency of implementation of the education quality and children’s rights can not be dissociated from schoolteachers’ competency, strategic thinking ability, preparation and provided help.
