Description: 

Education is a fundamental human right. The United States has made numerous domestic and international commitments to ensuring the human right to education, and while there is no federal constitutional right, nearly every State Constitution in the United States recognizes the right to an education. Federal laws also protect against discrimination in education on the basis of race, national origin, sex and disability.
