Summary/Abstract: The requirements towards school education in XXIst century still do not coincide with what is being experienced in real life. The article contains a short historical sketch of education both in Poland and within the world, with compulsory and home educations taken into account. The positive aspects of home education is emphasised. Even thou a few objections towards this way of teaching are noticed, it is of most importance to say that the family has the primary and natural credential to raise and educate children. The parent-school relation must be based on the bidirectional respect and help, regardless the place where a child is being taught. The second aspect is that individual approach towards pupils and meeting them directly give much better results than traditional knowledge flow and propagation of averageness. This is the very highlight of the home education, which gathers more and more followers around the world.
