Fleischhackerová, Lucie ; Šťastný, Vít (advisor) ; Walterová, Eliška (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the issue of the impact of measures in the COVID-19 on parental motivations when making decisions and choosing private tutoring for pupils of primary and secondary education in larger cities in the Czech Republic. The aim of the diploma thesis is to map the reasons for choosing private tutoring for pupils and the way in which the pandemic affected them. This is so-called shadow education, which includes various forms of private tutoring. The work uses qualitative research in the form of in-depth interviews. An individual interview with parents of pupils (n = 10) who use or are about to use private tutoring is chosen for data collection. Parents of primary and secondary education pupils were approached for the research. Parents play a vital role in private tutoring, as they are the ones who arrange and finance it for their children, and therefore create demand, so it is important to pay attention to their role in private tutoring especially how it has changed during the pandemic. The choice of the work topic and research problem is based on the topicality of the issue of private tutoring as a shadow education, and above all on the absence of information about parental motivations when making decisions and choosing private tutoring, especially during and after the...
