Abstract

This paper examines how educators are playing a dynamic role in ensuring the realisation of the right to quality education through their educational pedagogies. Teaching and learning have now become an essential tool in shaping the right to access quality education. The paper articulates the intervention by the judiciary through its pronouncements, laws, structures, policies and salient programmes in promoting the right to quality education. It emphasises the importance of capacitating educators with relevant expertise and knowledge so that they will impart that education to the learners. It also hints the importance of having good infrastructural amenities as they augment the delivery of the right to quality education. This paper emphasizes that jurisprudentially speaking, the right to education is inalienable and as such, it is incumbent on the government and institutions responsible for delivery of education to ensure that the right is promoted and always provided for. The paper adopted a non-empirical approach generally acceptable in legal research activities. It recommends that government must capacitate and empower educators as this will enable them to improve their pedagogic methods and as a result deliver an education of good quality and high standard.
