Charter schools are tax payer funded K-12 schools that are managed by private companies. Grant-maintained schools were established in the UK and Wales in 1988. These schools were independent of the local school authority until they were turned into foundation schools in 1998. Since 1998 200 Academies have opened which are publicly funded schools with a significant degree of autonomy.
Primary focus should be to improve existing schools and if they do come in to place they should not be for profit with proceeds going towards tax with allowance for investment in facilities only. Wages to staff should be comparable as to not detract from quality of teachers choosing to go to public schools.
We should be focused on funding state schools and improving the educational opportunities for the masses—programmes for those of particular aptitudes in various areas—including those of which are vocational—should also be considered—though the entrance into said programs should also be not solely credited through standardised testing.
