The article considers the category of language rights of a person in the educational field and the problems of their provision in Ukraine. This concept is considered in accordance with the theoretical approaches in the social and legal sciences, as well as the practice of applied legal norms. This study indicates that one of the key issues of state language policy in Ukraine in the field of education is still the problem of finding a legislative balance between the need to ensure the use and development of Ukrainian as a state language, and on the other - guaranteeing the right to learn or study native language of minority. It is noted that the legal guarantee for teaching in the mother tongue by members of national minorities is narrower than the constitutional guarantee, as it is limited only to the levels of preschool and primary education. At the same time, individuals belonging to the indigenous peoples of Ukraine are guaranteed the right to study in their native language in public educational institutions for general secondary education.
