Algumas coisas que por vezes terá querido saber sobre a liberdade de escolha lá fora, mas que os seus defensores raramente sentiram necessidade de divulgar. Mas por falta de tempo, claro. Reparem que eu fui buscar isto a publicações do Banco Mundial e não propriamente ao Avante.
The majority of schools are private, usually managed by a foundation or church. Municipal authorities are the competent local authority for schools in the area. All schools are governed by a legally recognized authority (school board). The school board is responsible for implementing legislation and regulations in schools. There is, despite school choice and diversity of supply, no significant elite school sector (Karsten et al. 1995). It is required that primary and secondary schools receiving public funds must be not-for-profit. Nevertheless, school boards are able to retain surplus earnings. There are a few for-profit schools, representing less than 1 percent of total enrollments (Hirsch 2002), but they are too small to receive government funds.
