Until 1970, parents in the Netherlands were able to comply with the compulsory education law by educating their children themselves. But the current law states that parents must enroll their child in a school and must ensure that their child visits this school regularly after enrollment. Thus, home education is effectively prohibited. In this thesis, the author discusses whether this prohibition is in line with the practice in similar countries, with international provisions on education and the Dutch constitution. The thesis includes a legislative proposal for legalization of home education in the Netherlands.
