Based on the universal justification for education and children's rights, I provide in chapter 6 a universal definition of education including basic guidelines for literacy and numeracy instruction. These guidelines are intended to protect local cultures while preparing students to decide on the advantages and disadvantages of the global economy and culture. These guidelines are also intended to provide minimum guidance in the organization of school systems. In chapter 7, I provide educational guidelines for preparing students to mediate the effect of world culture and economics.

Garding justifications and meanings provides a pragmatic method for achieving a statement of human rights. Ironically, this so-called practical approach fails when attempting to practice human rights. For instance, consider from a Hindu perspective Article 26's declaration of the right to education. Puntambekar might argue that the content of education should lead the individual to an escape from worldly desires to spirituality. There is a striking difference between Buddhist educational traditions and Western traditions of educating good citizens and workers.

I use the accumulated debates since 1948 about education and children's rights as a Page 7 starting point for articulating a justification and concept of universal education. Two important conditions, I believe, are required for a universal justification for the right to education.
