Freedom of education

Freedom of education comprises the freedom to found a school, freedom of denomination and freedom to administer a school. Christian, Islamic, Hindu, Jewish and several other denominational schools are financed by the state under the condition that they meet certain educational standards and comply with the financial conditions.
