Legal status of homeschooling: Homeschooling was legalized by Education Act No. 245/2008 Coll. (22 May 2008). However, this law authorized homeschooling only for ages 6–10, provided that the parent who gives instruction is a fully-qualified teacher. Parents must apply to schools for permission to homeschool. Children must be registered with a local primary school, taught the same curriculum as in the schools, and tested every 6 months.
Estimated number of home schoolers: under 50
