The present paper is an attempt to highlight the role of education in the protection of human rights and promotion of human rights awareness and there by emphasizing education as a pre requisite for the protection and promotion of human rights. Education is the pathway for the progress of any nation. It is through proper education, an individual gets aware about his rights and duties. It has potential to inculcate and imbibe human rights values. It is through education human rights are actually put into practice. Human rights are inherent to every person of the society by virtue of being human. It is one of the basic rights for survival. Human rights cannot be discriminated on the basis of nationality, residence, religion, race, status, language or any other consideration. They are indivisible and focus on the dignity of the individuals. National and international laws are there to protect them. No doubt education helps individuals to promote and protect their rights. If a person is educated, he/she is not vulnerable as far as his/her rights are concerned. He/She knows how to protect his/her rights.
