            else if (escolaridadeObrigatoriaRadioButton.Checked)
                return EEscolaridade.EscolaridadeObrigatoria;

            return EEscolaridade.EnsinoSuperior;

With the method verificaEscolaridadeSelecionada() declared as private I don't get any error. If I changed that to public or protected then I get the error.

The default, if no access modifier is supplied for a class or enum it is considered private, so your enum is private. You cannot return a private enum from a method which is not also private.
