Attitudes of the Czech society towards an amendment of a law about Czech educational system, higher education fees and standardized secondary school graduation tests – September/November 2022


In the survey, which was conducted from the beginning of September to the beginning of November 2022, the CVVM asked a battery of questions examining the attitudes of Czech citizens towards the measures introduced by the amendment to the Czech Education Act. The measures approved by the amendment to the Czech Education Act relating to pre-school education are widely supported by the public. Less than three-fifths (58%) of respondents are against compulsory mathematics graduation, while more than one-third (35%) are in favour. The attitude of the Czech population towards the payment of tuition fees at public universities has long been negative (more than two-thirds are against) and has remained almost unchanged over time.

Half (50%) of respondents are in favour of including children with special needs in mainstream primary schools, while more than two-fifths (44%) are against. Compared to 2020, the proportion of those in favour has increased by 9 percentage points, outweighing those against for the first time.
