State school

A state school or public school[note 1] is a primary or secondary school that educates all students without charge. Such schools are funded in whole or in part by taxation.[citation needed]

State-funded schools exist in virtually every country of the world,[citation needed] though there are significant variations in their structure and educational programmes. Government funded education generally encompasses primary and secondary education (4 years old to 18 years old).
