Popis The present paper focuses on one of the key-questions in education - equal chances. As in other European countries, the right to equal chances is also formally settled in the Czech Republic. The Charter of Rights and Freedom gives every person the right to free of charge primary and secondary education and also the right to study university based on personal abilities and possibilities. The aim of the paper is to compare this normative right given by the Charter of Rights and Freedom to the empirical evidence, given the main dimensions of the Czech educational system. To what extent is the access to secondary education with GCSE conditioned by the social background in the Czech Republic? Are there any changes in time in the social chances to access upper secondary education by the social background? Although, it seems at first glance, that there are no barriers in the access to Czech educational system, the results based on the PISA data gathered in 2000 and 2009 confirm that the Czech educational system reproduces socially conditioned inequalities from one generation to another.
