Hi,

Try to do like following:

in py file:

def onchange_child_attending_school(self, cr, uid, ids, child_attending_school=False, context=None):
        if child_attending_school:
            return {'value': {'boolean': True}}     
        else:
            return {'value': {'boolean': False}}

in xml file:

<field name="child_attending_school" on_change="onchange_child_attending_school(child_attending_school)/> 
<group string="Education" colspan="4" col="6" attrs="{'invisible':[('boolean', '=', False)]}"> 
      <field name="education_level"/> 
     <field name="class"/> 
     <field name="name_of_school"/>
     <field name="residence"/> 
     <field name="school_address"/>
     <field name="name_of_class_teacher"/> 
     <field name="school_telephone"/> 
</group>

You should restart the server for affecting changes of py file and need to update that module to affect changes of xml file.
