What about compulsory education in Switzerland

Compulsory education

Compulsory education can be fulfilled by attending an official school, attending a private school or through private education (homeschooling).
In allen Kantonen regelt die Schulgesetzgebung den Besuch von Privatunterricht während der Dauer der obligatorischen Schulzeit. In der Regel ist der Privatunterricht bewilligungspflichtig und untersteht der staatlichen Aufsicht.
You can find out what the requirements are under your canton of residence.
The right to education is enshrined in the Swiss constitution. There is a duty to educate, but not a duty to attend school.
Every learner who wants to graduate in Switzerland must follow the official curriculum of the canton of residence.
If your child wants to study and graduate freely, as with homeschooling, a close relationship should be maintained with the authorities of the canton of residence, but also with a liaison teacher:in. They will also be able to administer the final exams.

Good to know:
Depending on the cantonal school legislation, homeschooling children can claim services from the school services including the necessary clarifications, e.g. school health services, speech therapy.

Important to note if you need or want to hire a teacher:
Obtain a criminal record extract for the future teacher, as well as reference extracts (a current private extract or special private extract). The special private extract provides information on whether the candidate is authorised to work with minors or particularly vulnerable persons. It is also recommended to have a declaration signed stating that there are no ongoing proceedings in the last six months or misdemeanours that could lead to proceedings.
