In 1960, the Convention against Discrimination in Education of UNESCO is adopted.
It is the first international instrument which covers the right to education extensively and has a binding force in international law.
This Convention, which does not admit any reservation, has so far been ratified by 106 states.
This legally binding instrument encompasses the idea that education is not a luxury, but a fundamental right and it underscores the state obligation to proscribe any form of discrimination in education while promoting equality of educational opportunity.
States parties to the Convention are under the obligation to implement the right to education as it is elaborated including, among other provisions, the obligation of the state to provide free and compulsory education.
