Paris the 18th November 2020

Project to Ban Home Education (IEF) in France: an Unconstitutional Measure.

On the 2nd of October 2020, within the framework of the bill to strengthen secularism and the principals of the republic, the French president announced:

As of the return-to-school in 2021, schooling will be made compulsory for all from 3 years of age onwards. Home education will be strictly limited, specifically for health requirements”.

In France freedom of education, of which home education is a case in hand, is a constitutional right. At our request Bernard Fau, Esq., a lawyer of the Cour de Paris and member of the Conseil de l’Ordre, alerted the Conseil d’Etat (Council of State) to the unconstitutional nature of this measure.

Today we publish an interview with Bernard Fan, Esq., who explains in the video why “there is no doubt of the constitutional guarantee of the freedom of home education”. Six minutes of instructive video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H646P9L3mzg
