Abstract: One of the mandates of UNESCO is to make education accessible to all, in law and in fact, and in this respect, Maltese governments have certainly delivered. Where the education of children and young people is concerned, the principles of non-discrimination, of equality of opportunity and treatment, and of (intellectual and moral) solidarity have been respected, and the constitutional right of all children to attend school has not been denied, regardless of the legal or social status of the parents. All children up to the age of sixteen are entitled to free education and are legally obliged to attend school. Access to education to Third Country Nationals (TCNs) is granted through various Regulations: those concerning the status of long-term residents (Third Country Nationals), those concerning the common standards and procedures for returning illegally staying TCNs, those concerning the right to family reunification, and so on.
