Legal Status: Interest in homeschooling is growing steadily. Article 68 of the Uruguayan Constitution states each parent has the right to choose the teachers or schools relative to their child's education. However, the latest interpretation of the education law explains this as “the right of parents to send their kids to a school authorized by the state, whether it is public or private.”
