For my French homeschooling and expat friends, the wait for the 2022-2023 Demande d’Authorisation d’Instruction Dans la Famille form is over.
Apparently, it is the form parents must complete to obtain permission from the French government to homeschool.
The form is now online. You can find a link to it below. Keep in mind, my website here is for information only. I am not responsible for changes or updates to this link.
The End to Homeschooling in France Story
Following a new law in France, pushed by President Macron, which severely limits homeschooling, homeschooling is now restricted to four specific exceptions. Find a link to the law below. Plus, parents must obtain permission to homeschool, rather than making a declaration.
Despite massive opposition to the proposed law, which was wrapped up in legislation to combat Islamic Extremism, the law was enacted.
