Notes[edit]

"International school" is irregularly capitalized throughout the article. (Sometimes the first, both, or neither capitalized.) I didn't know which would be best so I haven't fixed the article. anon 12:40, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

National Curricula. What is that?[edit]

Whoa...I don't know about the UK, but in the USA there is no such thing as a "national curricula." Furthermore, the words, "international schools represent Education in the United Kingdom or Education in the United States" is at least ill-defined and perhaps meaningless.

International schools typically use curricula based on the school's country of origin. The most common international schools represent Education in the United Kingdom or Education in the United States. --TMH (talk) 06:39, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
There is no UK National Curriculum. There is an English National Curriculum, Scottish Qualification Framework, Welsh Curriculum and Northern Ireland Curriculum. Each part of the UK has their own Board of Education responsible for either respective national assembly or as an independent non-profit corporations in case of England. To all the complications private schools can follow an alternate "British" frameworks like Pre-U. So this article needs serious revision. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.8.84.167 (talk) 03:41, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

So much wrong[edit]

The article is pushing an ill-informed point of view.

The introduction is too long and has a single definition from a librarian's meeting which does not accurately reflect the current thinking the definition of an international school. There are many unsubstantiated statement, some of which seem contradictory.

Statements such as, "The first International schools were founded in the latter half of the 19th century in countries such as Japan, Switzerland and Turkey ..." seem to be original research and ignore historical evidence.

Someone with some energy needs to almost substantially rewrite the entire article.
