Czech lawmakers want to restrict random choice of primary schools and nurseries

Lawmakers want to end the practice of parents selecting a primary or nursery school for their child based on its quality or location on the grounds that this presents a serious problem for some municipalities who are often unable to meet the needs of children living in the given locality. The practice, dubbed "school tourism“ has become widespread in recent years and has even led to parents paying to register their child as a permanent resident in a different locality from their real home. As a result some schools are unable to enroll all applicants from a given locality and some have even resorted to a lottery to prevent complains and conflicts.
