REreligious instructioneducation

Religious teachers usually move on a weekly or monthly circuit, staying as guests in private houses in exchange for teaching. ISKCON In India, there are a number of private schools run by religious institutions, especially for Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains and Buddhists. During the era of British rule, Christian private schools were quite prominent and widely attended by both UK (British) and Indian students. Many of the schools established during this era, especially in areas with a heavy Christian population, are still in existence today.

Friedman Foundation for Educational ChoiceFoundation for Educational ChoiceMilton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation
Supreme Courts’ landmark decision on Ohio’s private school choice program in Cleveland, filing an amicus brief along with the Center for Individual Freedom, Cato Institute, and Goldwater Institute in support of the petitioners. The Supreme Court in Zelman v. Simmons-Harris concluded Cleveland’s school voucher program did not violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. In 2013, the Friedman Foundation was credited with influencing the Indiana Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling that the nation’s largest school voucher program was constitutional. The Friedman Foundation was cited in the official ruling.

Vocational school

trade schoolvocationalcareer college
The vocational schools are usually owned by the municipalities, but in special cases, private or state vocational schools exist. The state grants aid to all vocational schools on the same basis, regardless of the owner. On the other hand, the vocational schools are not allowed to operate for profit. The Ministry of Education issues licences to provide vocational education. In the licence, the municipality or a private entity is given permission to train a yearly quota of students for specific trades. The licence also specifies the area where the school must be located and the languages used in the education.

Independent school (United Kingdom)

independentindependent schoolindependent schools
In modern times however many of the secondary pupils in Scotland's private schools will have fed in from the school's own fee-paying primary school, therefore there is considerable competition facing pupils from state primary schools who seek to enter a private school at secondary stage, via entrance examinations. Independent schools, like state grammar schools, are free to select their pupils, subject to general legislation against discrimination.

International school

internationalinternational schoolsinternationalist
The term generally refers to teachers who are teaching in private or independent schools (Savva,2013). While these schools are private there is an important distinction between private for-profit and private non-for profit schools (Savva, 2013). Faculty at international schools are usually from or certified by the standards of their country of origin. However, there are exceptions, the most common of which the international school requires a teacher trained specifically for an international syllabus or for teaching a foreign language rare to the international school's country of origin.

Private schools in these and most other states may also use it. Corporal punishment in American schools is administered to the seat of the student's trousers or skirt with a specially made wooden paddle. This often used to take place in the classroom or hallway, but nowadays the punishment is usually given privately in the principal's office. Official corporal punishment, often by caning, remains commonplace in schools in some Asian, African and Caribbean countries. Currently detention is one of the most common punishments in schools in the United States, the UK, Ireland, Singapore and other countries.

Public school (United Kingdom)

public schoolpublic schoolsPublic
A public school in England and Wales traditionally refers to one of seven private schools given independence from direct jurisdiction by the Public Schools Act 1868: Charterhouse, Eton College, Harrow School, Rugby School, Shrewsbury School, Westminster School, and Winchester College. These were all-male boarding schools, but many now accept day pupils as well as boarders. By the 1930s the 'public school' label applied to twenty-four schools. Today the term is more generally used to refer to any fee-paying private school. Public schools have had a strong association with the ruling classes.

National Education Association

NEANational Educational AssociationIllinois Education Association
The NEA has often opposed measures such as merit pay, school vouchers, weakening of teacher tenure, certain curricular changes, the No Child Left Behind Act, and other reforms that make it easier for school districts to use disciplinary action against teachers. In July 2019, the NEA voted down a resolution that would have "re-dedicate[d] itself to the pursuit of increased student learning in every public school in America by putting a renewed emphasis on quality education." With the modern scrutiny placed on teacher misconduct, particularly regarding sexual abuse, the NEA has been criticized for its failure to crack down on abusive teachers.

Other awards and recognitions include: Welner has studied the public right to education, tracking, school vouchers, school choice, educational equity, and the use of research. In 2005, Welner conducted research on school vouchers as a resident of the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center. That research was later published as a major work on school vouchers, NeoVouchers: The Emergence of Tuition Tax Credits for Private Schooling. The book provided an early explanation of the legal and policy issues surrounding a then-new type of private school vouchers.

Florida Opportunity Scholarship Program

The Florida Opportunity Scholarship Program was a school voucher program in the U.S. state of Florida. It provided students from failing public schools in Florida with school vouchers enabling them to choose a "higher performing public school or a participating private school." A failing public school was: "a school that has received two "F" grades within a four-year period." The program was declared unconstitutional in a January 5, 2006 ruling and students assigned to a failing school are no longer allowed to transfer and enroll in a participating private school while "the option to attend a higher performing public school remains in effect."

Pakistan School Muscat

Pakistan School (Muscat)
Pakistan School Muscat (PSM) is a state of Art school in the Sultanate of Oman. It was founded in a rented flat in Muscat, as a result of a decision made in the first meeting of Pakistani Culture Centre. Efforts, spearheaded by Mr. and Mrs. S. M.

He is still active in advocating for integrated public education in the United States and is a critic of the school voucher movement. He continues to condemn the inequalities of education and the apparently worsening segregation of black and Hispanic children from white children in the segregated public schools of almost every major city of the nation. Kozol's ethical argument relies heavily on comparisons between rich and poor school districts. In particular, he analyzes the amount of money spent per child.

Pierce v. Society of Sisters

6Pierce v. Society of Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Maryright to send one's children to private school
There were several exceptions incorporated in this Act: The Act was amended by the 1922 initiative, which would have taken effect on September 1, 1926, eliminated the exception for attendees of private schools. Private schools viewed this as an attack on their right to enroll students and do business in the state of Oregon. The act was promoted by groups such as the Knights of Pythias, the Federation of Patriotic Societies, the Oregon Good Government League, the Orange Order, and the Ku Klux Klan. Two sorts of opposition to the law emerged. One was from nonsectarian private schools, such as the Hill Military Academy, which were primarily concerned with the loss of their revenue.
