Types of Schools

Parents generally have a choice on where to send their children to school. Factors such as quality, location, cost, and philosophy all play into their decision-making. The options are not just public or private schools. There are various types of other school options, including charter schools, vocational schools, and distance learning schools. Parents also have the option of home schooling, which has some of its own challenges and rewards. FindLaw’s “Types of Schools” section has valuable information on home schooling, including current developments in home schooling alternatives and student access to public school facilities.
