The first part of the article reviews the legal regulation and legal acts that embed the right to education on a national level. The second part of the article presents the legal system of Lithuania in the context of the right to general education and the institutional system of education. The importance of the state role insuring the proper access and availability of the right to education is introduced in light of international legal framework, which makes the right to education a universal right of an individual, and a binding obligation of the state to make such a right generally available and accessible.
