Homeschooling in Brazil: A Matter of Rights or a Political Debate?
Barbosa, Luciane Muniz Ribeiro
Journal of School Choice, v10 n3 p355-363 2016
This article presents an analysis of the right to education in Brazil in light of the growing number of Brazilian families practicing homeschooling. The debate is recent in Brazil. Here we present an analysis of international literature on homeschooling, Brazilian literature on the right to education, and an appraisal of lawsuits against Brazilian families for teaching their children at home. In light of truancy regulations and the evolution of a right to education in Brazil, homeschooling creates legal and political challenges.
