From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freedom of education refers to the right of any person to manage their own education, start a school, or to have access to the education of their choice without any constraints.

Freedom of education is a constitutional (legal) concept that has been included in the European Convention on Human Rights and several national constitutions, e.g. the , the Belgian constitution (former article 17, now article 24) and the Dutch constitution (article 23).

Brown v. Board of Education was a landmark Supreme Court case that overturned segregation in schools based on the color of one's skin.

In Holland throughout the nineteenth century a political battle raged over the issue of the State monopoly on tuition-free education. It was opposed under the banner of "Freedom of Education" and the Separation of Church and State. The Dutch called it "De Schoolstrijd" (The Battle of the Schools). The Dutch solution was the Separation of School and State by funding all schools equally, both public and private.[1]
