CNCDH took part in the revision of school curricula and the introduction of the national plan of action for education and training in human rights, in the context of the United Nations Decade. 73 DEI noted a discrepancy between educational programmes affirming a commitment to education in human rights and their actual implementation in schools, which continues to be largely theoretical and takes second place to the teaching of so-called “basic” disciplines. 74
