Home Schooling Legalities


TEACH families in the UK are blessed to have strong laws that protect their freedom to home educate. But with over 20% of TEACH families residing outside of the UK, it’s important to pray for countries where the parents’ prerogative to choose the method of their children’s education is not recognised.

Romania-Not Recognised– A parent has the right to choose their children’s education.

Poland-Legal- Homeschooling is legal, but there are plans to make it more difficult.

Netherlands-Prohibited- School attendance is mandatory; HE is not a valid form of education.

Germany-Illegal-Hitler banned homeschooling in 1938; it is his one remaining law.
