Artikulo 26
1) Ang bawat tao'y may karapatan sa edukasyon. Ang edukasyon ay walang bayad, doon man lamang sa elementarya at pangunahing antas. Ang edukasyong elementarya ay magiging sapilitan. Ang edukasyong teknikal at propesyonal ay gagawing maabot ng lahat at ang lalong mataas na edukasyon ay ipagkakaloob nang pantay-pantay sa lahat batay sa pagiging karapat-dapat.
2) Ang edukasyon ay itutungo sa ganap na pagpapaunlad ng pagkatao at sa pagpapalakas ng paggalang sa mga karapatan ng tao at mga pangunahing kalayaan. Itataguyod nito ang pagkakaunawaan, pagbibigayan, at pagkakaibigan ng lahat ng bansa, mga pangkat na panlahi o panrelihiyon, at palawakin ang mga gawain ng mga Bansang Nagkakaisa sa ikapapanatili ng kapayapaan.
