Article 2 of Protocol 1: Right to education
This is a non-absolute right which protects the right to education and makes sure that students have access to education and teaching.
- The right to go to school, university or other education institution.
- The right to get official recognition when studies have been completed, like a certificate of completion or university degree.
The right to education is particularly important when it comes to children and young people with mental health problems. No child or young person below the school leaving age should be denied access to education just because they are receiving medical treatment for a mental health problem.
