I read an article about free schools in the UK.

When it comes to free school in Japan, we think of schools for children who have difficulty in keep up with ordinary classes because of various reasons, such as learning disorder.

That schools are run by private, and are not authorized by legitimate schools.

Thus, the students are required to take exams if they need certifications.

Whereas, free schools in the UK are approved by the government.

Since schools don't need to comply with the defined curriculum, they can provide educations which focus on children's specific abilities, such as art.

However, the free schools are not controlled by local councils which regulate the size of classes, so the number of students are increasing, and there are not enough facility for them.
