I just saw an article on education in Argentina and it stated that homeschooling was NOT an option! I'm a bit confused since I came across another article by HSLDA which stated " There is no legislation that expressly prohibits homeschooling in Argentina" Then it went on to add that there ARE families that homeschool. Any thoughts on this? My kids are currently homeschooled and I'd like to continue that. However, if it's illegal, then we'd respect the laws of the country on this. Any thoughts? Can anyone give me some specifics?
- Minor children are under the authority and care of parents
- Parents have the duty and the right to raise, support, and educate their children
- The State guarantees the constitutional right to teach and learn
- The family is a natural and primary agent in the education of children
- Parents have the right to choose an educational institution that corresponds to their philosophical, ethical or religious convictions.
An international school might be an option, if you can afford it (the fees are notoriously high). If your children are young enough, though, going to a public school could help them integrate with the local population. I mention the age of your children because the younger they are the easier it is to pick up a new language - all public schools in Argentina speak in Spanish.
Hi Virginia and Meagan,
I am interested in finding out about homeschooling in Argentina. I know it has been a few years since you wrote your post but would love to know if homeschooling is more popular now. Are there many schools that also offer homeschooling or do you think children who are homeschooled in Argentina sign up to a dedicated online school. I cannot find any online schools in Argentina. I would be very grateful if either of you knew of any online schools in Argentina. Many thanks. Caroline
