DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICIABILITY OF THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION – THE BRAZILIAN EXPERIENCE
Abstract: Democratic regimes establish themselves to the extent to which they are accepted by the majority of the population living under them. This acceptance is translated into a knowledge of and trust in their respective political and legal institutions. Quality education is relevant to democratic governance and citizenship building, as it provides access to the cognitive tools needed for significant political participation. This paper analyzes the interactions between democracy and quality education in the light of judicial proceedings being applied to the right to education, focusing on Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) activities in the period between 2000 and 2010.
