Background and Aim: The fundamental right of every child to education and the obligations of countries regarding achieving this right are considered in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. At the level of primary education, member states are obliged to provide free primary education. Also, according to their constitutions and international covenants, governments have the obligation to provide formal and public education with a desirable and complete quality for the members of the society. This study was conducted with the aim of investigating the right to free education in relevant documents and laws and its status in Iran.
Method: The research method is descriptive and data collection was done using the library method.
Results: Article 30 and paragraph 3 of Article 3 of the Constitution and Articles 1 and 2 of the Law on Provision of Educational Equipment and Facilities for Iranian Children indicate the importance and being mandatory of education. Fortunately, in the last few years, the Ministry of Education has taken significant steps in the field of primary education, but it is still far from reaching the desired point and developing the right to free and high-quality education.
Conclusion: Fulfilling the right to free education requires creating priority, policy making, support, quality improvement and legal supervision and establishing the requirement for everyone to attend necessary educational courses.
