Homeschooling international status and statistics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Homeschooling is legal in many countries. Countries with the most prevalent home education movements include Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Some countries have highly regulated home education programs as an extension of the compulsory school system; others, such as Germany,[1] have outlawed it entirely. Brazil has a law project in process. In other countries, while not restricted by law, homeschooling is not socially acceptable or considered undesirable and is virtually non-existent.

Legality by country



Status: Legal

Homeschooling is currently permitted in Kenya.[3]

The freedom of homeschooling is however under threat in Kenya, because a new education law has been proposed that does not make any allowance for homeschooling.[4]

South Africa

Status: Legal

During apartheid, home education was illegal in South Africa. The parents Andre and Bokkie Meintjies were jailed in 1994– (this was the year Mandela were elected as President of South Africa), and their children were placed in an orphanage, because they educated their children at home. However, a few years later, the Mandela government legalised home education with the publication of the South African School Act in 1996. Since it was legalised, homeschooling has the fastest growing education model in the country.

Homeschooling is legal according to South African national law, but individual provinces have the authority to set their own restrictions.[5] The SA Schools Act requires parents to register their children for education at home. In practice however, most provincial departments do not have the administrative capability to register children for home education. Some of the larger provincial departments have limited administrative capabilities to register children for home education. Unfortunately the officials in those departments have a limited understanding of home education and the law on home education. Due to this, these officials often require parents to meet all sorts of requirements that are not stipulated by the law. As a result of this situation, more than 90% of homeschooling parents do not register with the department.[6]



Status: Legal[7]

There is no law addressing homeschooling in Argentina. It is the parents' responsibility to make sure their child(ren) get an adequate education.


Status: Illegal[8]

A couple, a Brazilian mother and an American father, was investigated in 2010 by the municipal government of Serra Negra, São Paulo, for homeschooling their children. The local authorities were tipped off by an anonymous source because the couple's two daughters did not attend school. The Public Ministry expected to reach an agreement with the family to enlist the children in formal schools.[9] Enrollment in schools in Brazil is mandatory for people aged 4–17.


Status: Legal

Approximately 1% to 2% of North American children are homeschooled, which includes about 60,000 in Canada.[10][11] Back in 1995, Meighan estimated the total number of homeschoolers in Canada, to be 10,000 official and 20,000 unofficial.[12] Karl M. Bunday estimated, in 1995, based on journalistic reports, that about 1 percent of school-age children were homeschooled.[13] In April 2005, the total number of registered homeschool students in British Columbia was 3,068.[14] In Manitoba, homeschoolers are required to register with Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth. The number of homeschoolers is noted at over 1,500 in 2006; 0.5% of students enrolled in the public system.[citation needed]

United States

Status: Legal

In "The Condition of Education 2000–2009," The National Center for Education Statistics of the United States Department of Education reports that In 2007, the number of homeschooled students was about 1.5 million, an increase from 850,000 in 1999 and 1.1 million in 2003.[15] The percentage of the school-age population that was homeschooled increased from 1.7 percent in 1999 to 2.9 percent in 2007. The increase in the percentage of homeschooled students from 1999 to 2007 represents a 74 percent relative increase over the 8-year period and a 42 percent relative increase since 2003. In 2007, the majority of homeschooled students received all of their education at home (84 percent), but some attended school up to 25 hours per week. Currently, many also participate in homeschool cooperatives as well as utilize the resources of private tutors and community college-based programs, which allow students to earn college credits before attending college.


People's Republic of China

Status: Deemed illegal for citizens without approval, but no restrictions for foreign students.

Under China's education laws children are required to enroll in the school system from age seven and attend for nine years.[16] No specific regulations exist for home-schooling, though it can be allowed subject to approval as a non-governmental organization.[17][18] Despite its legal status, some parents in China opt for home-schooling for reasons including dissatisfaction with the country's test-oriented public schools and a desire to individualize the education of their children.[16] There are no official figures for home-schooling, though one survey found that 18,000 children received home-schooling in the People's Republic of China, while an education policy researcher at Beijing Normal University estimated the portion of students receiving home-schooling at less than one percent.[16][17] Officials are divided on addressing home-schooling, with many supporting its legalization and others supporting compelling students to return to the regular school system.[16] Education experts generally support allowing home-schooling, but call for the creation of national standards.[18]

Hong Kong
Status: Unclear

Although the official position in Hong Kong appears to be that attendance at school is compulsory and free for students aged six to fifteen, the actual situation is less clear. Parents who fail to send their children to school after a school attendance order has been issued can be jailed for 3 months and fined HK$10000. In 2000, a man named Leung Jigwong (梁志光) disagreed with Hong Kong's education policy and refused to send his 9-year-old daughter to school. Instead, he taught her Chinese, English, French, Mathematics and The Art of War at home. After 2.5 years of discussion, the Education Department finally served an "attendance order" on him and his child was forced to attend a standard school.[19][20][21]

The Education Bureau (EDB) in Hong Kong will investigate cases of home education drawn to its attention but does not always issue a school attendance order. A number of families are known to be educating their children at home in Hong Kong with the permission of the Education Bureau.[citation needed] This suggests that the de facto situation in Hong Kong is somewhere between that of the UK and that of the PRC.[clarification needed]


Status: Legal


The legal position is complex; as homeschooling is uncommon, local officials may claim it is illegal but this is not actually the case.[22] Over 100,000 children refuse school, but the number of homeschoolers is much smaller, though it is increasing.


Status: Legal

Homeschooling in Indonesia (Indonesian: Pendidikan Rumah) is regulated under National Education System 2003 under division of informal education.[23] This enables the children of Homeschooling to attend an equal National Tests to obtain an "Equivalent Certificate".[24] The homeschooling is recently becoming a trend in upper-middle to upper-class families with highly educated parents with capability to provide better tutoring[25] or expatriate families living far away from International School. Since 2007 the Indonesia's National Education Department took efforts in providing Training for Homeschooling Tutors and Learning Media[26] even though the existence of this community is still disputed by other Non Formal education operators.[27] school.

Republic of China (Taiwan)

Status: Legal

Homeschooling in Taiwan, Republic of China is legally recognized since 1982[28] and regulated as a possible form of special education since 1997.[29]



Status: Legal

Homeschooling is legal in Austria. However, every homeschooled child is required to take an exam per year, to ensure that he or she is being educated at an appropriate level. If the child fails the test, he or she must attend a school the following year.[1]


Status: Legal

Children have to be registered as home-educated. In the French Community of Belgium, they are tested at 8, 10, 12, and 14.[citation needed]

The tests are new and there is still a lot of confusion on the tests and the legal situation around them. In Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of the country, the tests are optional.


Status: Illegal

Home education was legal in Croatia in 1874[30][31][32] when Croatian law stated that parents have a duty to educate their children either at home or by sending them to school. The child had to pass an exam in a public school at the end of every school year.

The primary education in Croatia is compulsory from the age of six to fifteen and it spans eight grades.[33]

On September 2010 a religious organisation Hrvatska kršćanska koalicija (Croatian Christian Coalition)[34] submitted a proposal[35] to change the law so home education would become legal in Croatia. The civil organisation Obrazovanje na drugi način (Another Way of Education)[36] joined in and is now working on its own proposal.

The proposed model is based on Slovenian and Montenegrin model of home education. The child is required to enroll into a local school (public or private) and pass an annual exam in certain subjects (mother tongue and math only in lower grades; with addition of foreign language in middle grades and more subjects in higher grades). If the child does not pass all the exams in two attempts, it is ordered to continue the education with regular school attendance. Every year the parents have to notify the school by the end of May that they will be educating their child at home.

Like in the case of Slovenia and Montenegro, the proposed model does not impose any limitation on who can home educate.[37] The parents educating their children at home are not eligible to receive any kind of state help. The schools are free to choose whether they will allow special arrangements with children educated at home (flexi-schooling, the use of school resources, participation in field trips and other school activities, etc.). The Ministry of Education and schools are not required to provide any form of help to parents of children educated at home (teacher guides, worksheets, consultation, etc.).

The proposed model was chosen as it requires minimal change to the existing law and would be possible to implement within the current educational framework. The Croatian Constitution,[38] in the Article 63 paragraph 1, states that parents have a duty to school their children. Similarly, in the Article 65 paragraph 1, it states that primary schooling is compulsory and free. It is deeply ingrained in Croatian culture that education cannot happen without schooling.

As of July 2011 there are three alternative primary schools in Croatia – one Montessori[39] and two Steiner Waldorf schools.[40][41] Alternative schools in Croatia are required to follow national curriculum[33] (Article 26 paragraph 1, Article 30).

Czech Republic

Status: Legal

The Ministry of Education began an experiment on September 1, 1998 in which home education was made a legal alternative for students in the first five years of elementary school. In 2004 home education, referred to as Individual Education, was enshrined in the Education Act for children within that age group. On September 1, 2007 a new experiment began allowing the home education of children up to the 9th grade.[42]


Status: Legal

It follows from § 76 in the Danish constitution that homeschooling is legal.[43]


Status: Legal

In Finland homeschooling is legal[44] but unusual (400–600 children[45]). The parents are responsible for the child getting the compulsory education and the advancements are supervised by the home municipality.[44] The parents have the same freedom to make up their own curriculum as the municipalities have regarding the school, only national guiding principles of the curriculum have to be followed.

Choosing homeschooling means that the municipality is not obliged to offer school books, health care at school, free lunches or other privileges prescribed by the law on primary education, but the ministry of education reminds they may be offered. The parents should be informed of the consequences of the choice and the arrangements should be discussed.[46]


Status: Legal

Home education is legal in France and requires the child to be registered with two authorities, the 'Inspection Académique' and the local town hall (Mairie). Children between the ages of 6 and 16 are subject to annual inspection.[47][48]

Every other two years, the social welfare, mandated by the mayor, verifies the reasons the family home educates and controls that the training provided is consistent with the health of the child. Parents will also be subject to annual inspections if they are teaching children between the ages of 6 and 16. Two consecutive unsatisfactory outcomes of these inspections can mean the parents will have to send their children to a mainstream school.

While homeschooling parents are free to teach their children in any way they like, the children must master the seven key competencies of the common foundation of competence at the end of the legal obligation (age 16).[49] The key competencies are:

Homeschooled children must also demonstrate that they can:

Laatst had ik zelf naar wat onderzoek naar gedaan en dit is wat ikzelf her en der heb geknipt:

Jouw zoon hoeft het Franse lesprogramma niet te volgen. Als je een controle krijgt van de inspecteur heeft die controle voornamelijk een sociaal karakter. D
aarnaast wil de inspecteur zien of jouw zoon vorderingen maakt. Natuurlijk zijn die gemakkelijker te toetsen voor hem in het Frans en wanneer je het programma volgt. In jouw geval zal je moeten aangeven welke vorm van onderwijs jouw zoon volgt en hij zal graag de vorderingen willen zien. Je bent vrij om te kiezen hoe je het wil aanpakken. Mijn ervaring met de Inspectie is heel positief. Ik kreeg een zeer welwillende, hulpvaardige dame aan de lijn die ik altijd mag bellen als ik vragen heb. Thuisonderwijs is in Frankrijk een keuze.

Mijn jongste zoon volgt, sinds september 2012, onderwijs via de Wereldschool (Lelystad).Hij is natuurlijk wel uitgeschreven in Nederland en ingeschreven in ons dorpje in Frankrijk.
De burgemeester moet officiel toestemming geven voor thuisonderwijs.
Aangezien het voor mijn zoon nog maar om twee jaren middelbare school gaat, ga ik hem niet frustreren met onderwijs in een andere taal.
De burgemeester meldtvervolgens aan de inspectie dat er thuisonderwijs gevolgd gaat worden, en als dat via een officiële school gaat, zoals de Wereldschool, is een simpele vertaling in het Frans voldoende.
Er zou eigenlijk wel controle moeten zijn van de Franse inspectie, maar zoals ik al eerder noemde, dat als onderwijs via een officiële school gevolgd wordt, zijn er geen problemen.
Het voordeel voor ons is ook dat ik zelf jarenlang in het onderwijs gewerkt heb, en ook orthopedagoog geworden ben, zodat ik het thuisonderwijs voor mijn zoon goed kan verdedigen.
Ik hoop dat je aan deze informatie iets hebt, zijn er nog vragen, dan hoor ik dat wel.

uit een rapport
Er zijn duidelijke verschillen in de criteria waar thuisonderwijs aan moet voldoen. In een aantal landen (onder andere Finland, Canada en Frankrijk) moet thuisonderwijs voldoen aan dezelfde eisen als schoolonderwijs of aan het nationaal curriculum of gelijkwaardig zijn aan schoolonderwijs. 

Er is een paar maanden geleden een petitie tegen TO geweest in Frankrijk, maar die is afgeblazen.

Status: Illegal

Homeschooling is illegal in Germany with rare exceptions. The requirement to attend school has been upheld, on challenge from parents, by the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany. Parents violating the laws have primarily or most prominently been Christians seeking a more religious education than that offered by the schools.[1][54] Sanctions against these parents have included fines of thousands of euros, successful legal actions to remove children from the parents' custody, and prison sentences.[1][54] It has been estimated that 600 to 1,000 German children are homeschooled, despite its illegality.[55]

In a legal case commenced in 2003 at the European Court of Human Rights, a homeschooling parent couple argued on behalf of their children that Germany's compulsory school attendance endangered their children's religious upbringing, promoted teaching inconsistent with their Christian faith–-especially the German State's mandates relating to sex education in the schools—and contravened the declaration in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union that "the State shall respect the right of parents to ensure education and teaching is in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions".

In September 2006, the European Court of Human Rights upheld the German ban on homeschooling, stating "parents may not refuse... [compulsory schooling] on the basis of their convictions", and adding that the right to education "calls for regulation by the State". The European Court took the position that the plaintiffs were the children, not their parents, and declared "children are unable to foresee the consequences of their parents' decision for home education because of their young age.... Schools represent society, and it is in the children's interest to become part of that society. The parents' right to educate does not go as far as to deprive their children of that experience."

The European Court endorsed a "carefully reasoned" decision of the German court concerning "the general interest of society to avoid the emergence of parallel societies based on separate philosophical convictions and the importance of integrating minorities into society."[56]

In January 2010, a United States immigration judge granted asylum to a German homeschooling family, apparently based on this ban on homeschooling.[57] In April 2013, a decision by a U.S. appeals court overruled this and denied the petition for asylum, on the grounds that Germany's law applies to every resident, and does not single out any specific religious group for persecution.[58]

An operation carried out by special agents in 2013 sparked the interest of global news outlets.[citation needed] The incident involved the Wunderlich Family of Darmstadt who, despite previous incidents, continued homeschooling. Special agents forcibly removed and seized four children from their home and ordered parents Dirk and Petra Wunderlich to attend a court hearing. Michael Farris of the Home School Legal Defense Association condemned the operation, calling it "an outrageous act by a rogue nation."[59]

The 12 Tribes is one religious group that insists on home schooling and has been in conflict with authorities. On September 5th 2013, German police raided two communities and removed 40 children to protect them from continued abuse.[60] An investigative TV report had documented systematic child abuse in a 100-strong community in Bavaria, including "persistent beatings for the most trivial offences".[61] A few days later, German media reported about the disappearance of about ten school-aged children from the small town of Dolchau. Probably they had been brought to a farm belonging to the 12 Tribes in the Czech Republic to elude intervention by the authorities to ensure their public schooling.[62]


Status: Illegal[citation needed]


Status: Legal

The Hungarian laws allow homeschoolers to teach their children as private students at home as long as they generally follow the state curriculum and have children examined twice a year. Homeschooled children still have to be registered with a state school where examinations are carried out, although parents can request independent exam boards. Homeschooling is more frequently requested for children with poor health or serious illnesses, who cannot otherwise attend school. When homeschooling is requested, school principals may seek help from local social services or the notary of the local government if they believe that homeschooling would be disadvantageous for the child.[63]


Status: Generally Illegal

Homeschooling is legal only if home teacher has a teaching degree.[64]

Republic of Ireland

Status: Legal

From 2004 to 2006, 225 children had been officially registered with the Republic of Ireland's National Education Welfare Board, which estimated there may be as many as 1500–2000 more unregistered homeschoolers.[65] The right to a home education is guaranteed by the Constitution of Ireland.[66]


Status: Legal

In Italy, homeschooling (called Istruzione parentale in Italian) is legal but not common: parents must prove to have the technical capability to teach and they must justify their decision to homeschool their children at the beginning of every year, homeschooled children must be registered to the school where they will take their final exams and are required to pass annual exams covering material in school curriculum.[67] Homeschooling ends in the second year of high school; to get the maturità, a student must attend three years of public or private school.[68]


Status: Generally Illegal

In the Netherlands every child is subject to compulsory education from his/her fifth birthday. The exemptions are extended on the basis of a clause in the law exempting parents from sending their child to school if they object to the "direction" of the education of all schools within a reasonable distance to their home.[69][70]


Status: Legal

Homeschooling is legal.[71]


Status: Legal

Homeschooling is only allowed on highly regulated terms. Every child must be enrolled in a school (as of 2009, the school does not need to be a public school). The school principal may, but is not obliged to, allow of homeschooling a particular child. Homeschooled children are required to pass annual exams covering material in school curriculum, and failure on an exam automatically terminates the homeschooling permit.[72]

Homeschooling is legal.[73]

The number of homeschoolers in Russia has tripled since 1994 to approximately 1 million.[citation needed] Russian homeschoolers are attached to an educational institution where they have the right to access textbooks and teacher support, and where they pass periodic appraisals of their work. The State is obliged to pay the parents cash equal to the cost of educating the child at the municipal school.[citation needed]


Status: Legal

Home education (slo. izobra?evanje na domu) is legal in Slovenia since 1996.[74] The law regarding home education has not been changed since then.[75][76] It is almost identical to Montenegrin model of home education. According to Slovenian Ministry of Education it was based on Danish model of home education.[75]

The compulsory school-age starts at 6 and lasts for 9 years ([76] Page 18(8666) Article 45). The child being home educated is required to enroll into a local school (public or private) and pass annual exam in certain subjects (mother tongue and math only in lower grades; with addition of foreign language in middle grades and more subjects in higher grades,[76][77] Page 22(8670) Article 90). If the child does not pass all the exams in two attempts, it is ordered to continue the education with regular school attendance. Every year the parents have to notify the school by the end of May that they will be home educating their child.

There are no special requirements for parents wanting to home educate their children. Parents are not eligible for any kind of state help nor are schools required to provide any kind of assistance. The schools are free to choose (they often do[78]) whether they will allow special arrangements with home educated children (flexi-schooling, the use of school resources, participation in field trips and other school activities, etc.). The Ministry of Education and schools are not required to provide any form of help to parents of home educated children (teacher guides, worksheets, consultation, etc.).

In the school year 2010/2011 97 children have been home educated.[75]

As of July 2011 there are no organised home education groups in Slovenia.[citation needed]

Slovak Republic

Status: Legal

Homeschooling is legal with obstacles in Slovak Republic. Child's tutor is required to have a degree with major in primary school education. However homeschooling is restricted only to the first four years of primary education.[79]


Status: Illegal

In Spain homeschooling is in somewhat of a legal vacuum. On the one hand in Article 27 the Spanish Constitution talks of compulsive education (not schooling), the freedom of teaching and the right of parents to choose their children's education in accordance with their own personal, moral and religious convictions. [12] On the other hand Spanish education law speaks of compulsive school attendance for all children between the ages of 6 and 16. (Sec. 4.2 Organic Law on Education 2/2006, of 3 May)[13].

In 2010 a family went in front of the Spanish Constitutional Court to argue that the Spanish education laws are not in accordance with the parental rights granted by the Constitution and are therefore unlawful. The decision made by the Constitutional Court made it clear that current education laws were in fact lawful interpretations of the Constitution with the result that since 2010 effectively school attendance is considered mandatory in Spain for all children from 6 to 16. (STC 133/2010, of 2 December)[14] However, the Constitutional Court also made it clear that the Constitution indeed only talks of compulsive education and that a change in the law to make homeschooling a legal alternative to regular school attendance would be a possible and lawful option for the future.

In 2009 the regional government of Catalonia amended its education law so that now according to article 55 "education without attendance to school" is a viable option.[80] However the regulation of that right hasn't yet been developed. As a regional law it can't contradict the education law passed by the national parliament. Hence the newly amended Catalonian law can only refer to pupils who have special needs or are for some other reason unable attend school regularly in order that they may have their educational rights met. (Sec. 3.9 Organic Law on Education 2/2006)[15].



General Information on Home Education in Spain

Home education is not illegal in Spain. However, it is also not legally recognised as a viable alternative to traditional schooling.

The Spanish Constitution in Article 27.1 states “Everyone has the right to education. Freedom of teaching is recognised.”

Hence, based on that education is compulsory, but schooling isn’t. However, the Spanish have decided that education must naturally be equal to school attendance.

For example, Article 27.5 says “The public authorities guarantee the right of everyone to education, though general education programming, with the effective participation of all parties concerned and the setting up of educational centres.”

All of the Education Laws that are based on the Constitution have adopted that very premise and quite clearly state that school attendance between the ages of 6 and 16 are compulsory.

In reality there are about 2000-4000 home-educating families in Spain. The vast majority of those lead their lives in peace. Some of the families who take a child out of school or discuss their educational choices with, for instance, their family doctor are reported to the authorities. In all cases social services have to follow up on those reports. As soon as it is clear that no case of truancy and/or abuse/negligence exists, many families are left alone to get on with their lives. In some cases social services pass on the cases to the courts.

Until December 2010 families ended up in criminal court being accused of child abuse. As clearly no such thing was taking place the families were generally acquitted. The cases were won based on Article 27.1 of the Constitution. Worse case scenario was an order to enroll the child at a school. In some instances even distance schools were acceptable.

In December 2010 one family who had previously been told to enroll their child at school went to the Constitutional Tribunal (CT) to have the prior ruling overruled. Unfortunately the CT is not a real court, but merely discusses the validity of Laws and Statues. It was found that the Educational Law that made school attendance between 6 and 16 compulsory was lawful and supported by the Constitution. However, the CT also stated that law changes that would make alternatives to traditional schooling legal would also be supported by the Constitution.

Since then legal proceedings have changed in Spain. Families are no longer tried just through the Criminal Court, but are now taken to Civil Courts and Voluntary Hearings. The Prosecution is taking advantage of the December verdict by the CT, which means that families can no longer argue that the Educational Laws are overruled by Article 27.1 of the Constitution.

However, the vast majority of families continue to live and learn undisturbed. Reports to the Authorities have not risen and although at least one case has since been lost, many others are still being acquitted on the premise that the children are receiving an adequate education and no truancy or neglect is taking place.

Note: Since 2009 within the autonomous region of Catalonia alternative education models such as distance schools have been legally recognised as a viable alternative to traditional brick and mortar schools. This breakthrough has been qualified by the expression “under exceptional circumstances”. Since the 2010 CT verdict some families within Catalonia have also encountered difficulties.

Status: Virtually illegal

In Sweden children are obligated to attend school from the age of 7. Homeschooling is not technically illegal within the country and is allowed as an afterschool activity while you are attending school,[81] but homeschooling without attending public or private schools is very difficult to have approved by the county in which one lives. In 2010 Sweden approved a law (SFS 2010:800) that further restricts homeschooling even further from an earlier law approved in 1985. Homeschooling is only allowed for special and specific reasons such as for children of parents working temporarily in the country. Homeschooling will not be approved based on religious beliefs or philosophical reasons, nor if the parent has had teacher training. Recent course cases have supported these restrictions on parents.[82]

An example of the difficulty in receiving permissions would be the Domenic Johansson custory case. In 2009 Domenic Johansson was taken from his parents (Christer Johansson, a Swedish citizen, and Annie Johansson, a native of India) while they were on board Turkish Air Flight 990, waiting for departure to the mother's home country India.[83] Domenic was taken into custody by the Swedish police due to reports of the child being homeschooled.[83] His parents opted to homeschool Domenic since they would be leaving the country later that year and since he had only turned seven a few months prior to the move.[84] The Johanssons reported that the Minister of Education had approved the homeschooling, but that local officials had refused to supply them with educational materials and fined them for every day Domenic did not attend the local school.[84] In June 2012 the Gotland district court ruled that the Johanssons should retain their parental rights over Domenic, which was later overturned by the appeals court.[85][86] The Home School Legal Defense Association has launched a campaign to review the case and return custody of Domenic to his parents.[87]


Status: Legal

Requirements vary from Canton to Canton. Approx 200 – 500 families currently homeschool[88][89]


Status: Illegal

In the Republic of Turkey, all children are required to be registered in state or private school so as to be in compliance with the National Education Basic Law (No. 1739, 06-14-1973, Article 22).[90] Distance education is also available through Turkey's national television channels.[90] Through this particular option, students go to a particular test site and take examinations based on what they have studied.[90] In Turkey, parents who fail to send their children to school are charged as criminals, which at times may result in their incarceration.[90] Due to the above legal constraints, Turkish parents face a great deal of difficulty in pursuing homeschooling for their children.[90]


Status: Disputed

The Home School Legal Defense Association claims that homeschooling is legal and expressly allowed for in Ukraine’s Education Law, but local authorities do not always agree.[91]

Homeschooling is mentioned swiftly in The Law of Ukraine on Education, article 59:

Parents and persons who substitute them shall be obliged to assist children to get education in educational institutions or provide them with full-value home education in accordance with the requirements to its content, level and scope.[92]

United Kingdom

Status: Officially Legal (England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own education laws each with slight variations regarding education otherwise than at school.)

Education provided outside a formal school system is primarily known as Home Education within the United Kingdom, the term Homeschooling is occasionally used for those following a formal, structured style of education – literally schooling at home. To distinguish between those who are educated outside of school from necessity (e.g. from ill health, or a working child actor) and those who actively reject schooling as a suitable means of education the term Elective Home Education is used.[93]

The Badman Review in 2009 stated that "approximately 20,000 home educated children and young people are known to local authorities, estimates vary as to the real number which could be in excess of 80,000."[94]



Status: Legal

The Australian census does not track homeschooling families, but Philip Strange of Home Education Association, Inc. very roughly estimates 15,000.[95] In 1995, Roland Meighan of Nottingham School of Education estimated some 20,000 families homeschooling in Australia.[12]

In 2006, Victoria passed legislation[96] requiring the registration of children up to the age of 16 and increasing the school leaving age to 16 from the previous 15, undertaking home education (registration is optional for those age of 16–17 but highly recommended). The Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) is the registering body.[97][98]

New Zealand

Status: Legal

As of July 2011 there were 6,517 homeschooled pupils registered with the Ministry of Education. It is an increase of 23.6% since 1998[99]
