In 1997, Poland has ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the project of which has been submitted in 1978 (UNICEF). Almost two hundred countries around the world have signed up the Convention, thereby committing themselves to respect the rights of the child in various dimensions of social life. The right to education is one of the fundamental rights of the child. It also concerns foreign children, who, as a result of migration, have settled down in Poland. The number of immigrants is not as high as in the countries that have built their empires on colonialism. Polish literature raising the issue of education and the rights of foreign children to it is not comprehensive and is based on the publications on the rights of children and cross-cultural education. The main aim of the dissertation is to approximate the literature of the subject with attention to their practical use.
