Abstract

The lack of children's rights in education and political resistance to reform in this area has attracted much critical attention. This article explores the distinctions between child law and education law; argues that the resistance to rights in the latter reflects contemporary constructions of childhood and dominant understandings of the purpose of education; and evaluates the uses and limitations of 'pupil participation'.

Keywords: child law, family law, education law, pupil participation
