“The need to incorporate Human rights education in the curriculum for teacher training in Bolivia “Human rights are a set of principles, universally accepted, recognized constitutionally and legally guaranteed, aimed at ensuring the human his individual dignity, in their individual and social dimension, material and spiritual. ” Jimena Castanos in the XXI century, we are still being “illiterate” in Human Rights, we are not being well educated on this issue, we have to overcome this lack of culture. It is necessary to “Teacher Training Schools” include in its curriculum “Human Rights Education” for the promotion and respect for themselves and that only people who know and understand your rights, you know require compliance and undertake to fight for them. It is important for students to form for teachers to have knowledge of Human Rights, since they are the “future trainers future generations. ” Thus the master-teacher, will become half human rights education, and students of primary and secondary level are not only recipients but also those who will transmit, but mostly to inform about their rights to whether to exercise that they can be and socialize in our society. Education in Values and Human Rights is the ideal instrument for people not only know their rights, but to also act in everyday life with the values inherent in a culture of respect for the rights of all men and respect for differences and valuing diversity to build a responsible citizenry.
For Human Rights Education should be efficient to achieve a genuine awareness of the rights and awaken an attitude of defending them, they must develop a belief that all human beings, regardless of our condition, we are beings worthy and, therefore, valuable and rights owners. If human rights are just a theory more or less interesting, they do not serve to transform our lives, little or no interest and become lofty words, not being practiced. To educate on human rights is not enough that we have clear ideas or knowledge on these issues is essential to meet with a number of conditions which are the feel convinced of its usefulness for building a more humane society, that we undertake both the project of society we want to build, to have faith that all human beings until the last day of our lives, we can change, we become better people, better individuals, better human. Human rights education is not just reporting on the contents of statements, but to sensitize about the values underlying these rights and are based on the dignity of every human being: freedom and responsibility, respect and justice, dialogue and tolerance, solidarity, equal rights and respect for individual differences, etc. We need an education that educates in practice and defense of human rights, as well as of democratic experimentation in school, family, community, which can become life-styles that human beings need to be and live as humans, building our history and focusing on a society and a different world, where man is a wolf to man, but a traveling companion, a brother, a friend, a human.
