Children's Rights

This term, for our Inquiry topic, we are applying our knowledge of children's rights to Nelson Central School and comparing this to other places around the world. As part of Setting the Scene we looked at what was a "need" and what was a "want" and related these to the Articles we know in UNCROC.
For homework last week we were asked to write questions about Children's Rights. Here are just some of them.
What happens if govenments take away children's rights?
How does New Zealand take Children's Rights seriously ?
Do people who violate rights have rights?
What do you think you should do if your rights aren't being respected?
Which countries don't have children's rights?
How many countries respect children's rights?
How did children come to have rights?
Are children's rights different and if so how are they different?
