Legal status of home schooling: Homeschooling is legal. The education law of Jan 2005 (Act 561/2004 Coll. Â§ 41, the School Act) establishes home education as one of the legal educational alternatives. Any family may apply for a permit to homeschool their children 5 years old or older, in any nursery school. They may apply for a permit to homeschool for primary school, ages 6-11, in any school. It is possible to homeschool during the lower secondary years, ages 12-15. The Czech Republic also places teacher qualifications, curriculum, and testing requirements upon homeschoolers.
Estimated number of home schoolers: 2,100 children 6 to 15 years old.
