Description Text offers discursive analysis of the debate lead upon Chamber of Deputies in 2014 and 2015, regarding the issue of individual education, held prior to the decision not to legalise this form of education on lower secondary level of compulsory schooling. For and against arguments are examined, contextualised in current social science literature upon the topic of individual education and post-socialism and analysed using Peter Wagner´s theory of modernity. It is concluded, that the reason for dismissing the legalisation of individual education is not so much due to the content or the quality of the curricula but rather due to the idea of lost power and control, which is exercised through mass education. The decisive voice in this debate was not that of those in favour, neither of those against but those who held the position ´in favour but..´ By emphasising subjectively viewed deficiency of wording of the proposed law, they are getting rid of the political responsibility to decide and send the issue of individual education back to the level of professional debate.
