Public Schools

Without publicly funded schools, many of our most important technological advances would never have occurred.

Public schools are institutions that are operated within the realm of tax based public funding. Although public schools are thought to be free, that is not necessarily the case. The money spent on public education is collected through income and property taxes which is a necessary burden on all tax paying citizens.

All countries and each segment of every society benefits from the use of public education. They need competent and well educated workforces to maintain and improve the standards of living for their citizens. In order to do this, public schools have to be made available to all citizens and education has to be compulsory up to a certain age.

Public schools are administered by state, local, and federal agencies and must adhere to guidelines that are set forth by laws that are created to govern the way they are run. Such laws were written, implemented, and enforced to insure that young people have the opportunity to receive the best education possible.

Public schools are required to meet standards that are satisfactory to those who oversee them, not just in regards to education and scholastic performance, but also in the teaching of social skills and mores in which students are expected to learn. Students are taught to follow rules and regulations and to participate in society at acceptable levels.

Public schools provide basic primary education starting from kindergarten on through elementary, middle, junior high, and high school as well as secondary schools from junior or city colleges, four year colleges and universities, and technical schools.

In most countries, it is compulsory for children to attend school but it does not have to be a public school. Public education is generally open to all students, although they have the option of attending private schools if their families can afford to pay the costs.

Public schools are also known as state or government schools. They are national, regional, or local government administered primary or secondary institutions of education that are overseen by publicly run agencies instead of private entities.

School districts are set up with independent officials and budgets and work as separate entities from other local jurisdictions. They administer the curriculum that is taught at their schools, teacher staffing, funding, employment opportunities, and they oversee the policies that affect how the schools are run on a daily basis.
