Israel Homeschooling

Most homeschoolers in Israel “just do it” based on their rights as defined by the Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty and ratified in supreme court rulings. Others ask the Ministry of Education for exemption from the compulsory schooling law, and are required to conform to its rather loose protocol. There are regular homeschooling gatherings in many areas in Israel, and also a homeschoolers registry for connecting homeschooling families that live in the same area. — Yonat

Additionally, homeschooling is not a viable financial option for many families in Israel where both parents usually have to work in order to make ends meet.
