The main principles of CFS models are ‘child-centredness’, ‘democratic participation’, ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘protection’. The theme of ‘democratic participation’, which states that as rights holders, children and those who facilitate their rights should have a say in the form and substance of their education, has not been explored fully in the CFS model in conflict-affected contexts.
