Expat Information: State School Systems for Expats

State schools are largely funded by taxation and are usually free to attend, though in certain countries private associations or churches can also operate state schools. It is often compulsory for children to attend school up to a certain age, usually until the completion of their primary and secondary education, though this obligation can also be met by children attending private schools rather than state ones.
