The varying systems of education around the world place more or less stress on goovernments. The private sector is often touted as a viable approach when governments cannot afford to provide services, but "when governments relinquish control of education to private providers, it is equally if not more important that standards be in place to regulate their work." These expenditures, and this overhead, is often not calculated into the cost of the private system to governments and families. And often, it doesn't work. "The very first step of accrediting schools in the first place is often cumbersome, prone to corruption, and therefore slow, leaving many operating without meeting even minimum safety and infrastructure standards."
