 Country Information

Compulsory Attendance: 6-16

Legal Status: The legal situation in Spain is somewhat precarious, with legal precedent which states that while it may not be illegal, it could, under certain circumstances, be considered to be illicit. The biggest difficulty families face is leaving the school system as there is no established path for this process. This situation can possibly lead to legal action against the family which could result in a school attendance order, though there are families who don’t encounter such difficulties, and a small, though relatively active, homeschooling community in different parts of the country.

Estimated number of homeschoolers: 2,000 families
