Schools are a necessity; something every person in the world should be exposed to during their lifetimes. As we grow up, we enter preschools, daycares and elementary schools. Then it’s off to middle school and after that, high school. For some, that’s where school stops but for others it’s on to higher education and various other schools for continuing education and adult learning. The benefits of operating a school include the fulfillment of enriching the lives of the student body. As long as the lessons are needed, the work tends to continue. The business of schooling takes on different forms. Public schools are funded by state budgets and taxpayer dollars while private institutions are paid by student tuition. Schools for adult learning are sometimes offered by the community through a public library. Others are offered through private enterprises for a fee.

Operating a school involves attention to detail, time management, and the ability to work with students at all levels of development. For private schools and adult learning enterprises most successfully market to maintain their student base. Operations require physical or virtual facilities, instructors, relevant courses, text books, and an accreditation system. Some schools offer in person experiences like live lectures, public speakers, food service and book stores. Schools must carefully vet employees for proficiency, fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Schools are typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS). These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with students, record classroom progress, and run accounting, billing, invoicing and school payment.
