Money, while an important aspect of educating the children of expats, may often not be the primary issue, since employers often take on the extra costs that are involved. More worrying is how to manage the long separations that are involved in maintaining contact with children left behind at boarding school or in the care of relatives, or if they are to be educated locally, in finding suitable schools.
