L’enseignement de la religion dans les établissements publics

Section 23 of the Constitution stipulates that churches and religious communities “provide religious education ” and Act no. 308/1991 Col. reads that worshippers have the right to be raised in a religious spirit, or to teach religion after fulfilling the conditions stipulated by internal directives of the churches and religious communities and by generally binding legal rules. The issue is regulated in more detail by the Basic Treary between the SR and the Holy See and the Agreement between the SR and registered churches and religious communities, yet they both refer to future detailed regulation in separate agreements. The right to religious teaching is established by Act no. 29/1984 Col. on the primary and secondary school system. Registered churches and religious communities are allowed to provide religious education in all schools and school facilities that are the part of the SR educational system. Teachers of religion has the same legal position as teachers of other subjects, but a necessary condition of their activity is authorisation by their own registered church or a religious community. Parents or legal guardians decide on the religious education of children up to the age of 15.
