    Schools paid for with tax dollars instead of by the people who attend them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) Here in the United States, they are called public schools. They are usually from K-12. That is, kindergarten and then the first to the twelfth grade. They are located in every town and city of the United States. Every child has a right to attend them, even those children whose parents are living in this country without documentation. Some people feel that the American public school system is one of the greatest achievements of this country. A serious student can get an excellent education 100% free of charge.

    (2) Some parents do not want their children to attend public schools

    (the reasons are many and cannot be discussed in this forum), so they send them to

    private schools that require payment (tuition).

    ( 3) CAREFUL: I hear that "public school" in the United Kingdom means "private school."

    I think that a very famous British public school is Eton, which has been attended by

    many of the United Kingdom's most important people.

    With all respect to The Parser, I think of state-sponsored/supported universities when I hear "state schools."

    In the UK, all state schools are publicly funded.
