In the United States the education system differs from state to state. In each school the principal, i.e. the headmaster, draws up curriculum for each grade. There are many different kinds of schooling: public schools, private schools, parochial schools, schools specializing in the arts, literature or science, etc. All American children aged 6 to 18 years (or 16 in some states) get free compulsory education. The most common system of education comprises: nursery school from 3 to 4 years; kindergarten (46 years); elementary school (612 years; 1st6th grades); junior high school (12 15 years; 7th9th grades); senior high school (1518 years; 10th 12th grades).

In public schools the curriculum varies in each state, for instance the subjects New York State requires in the 7th and 8th grades are: English; social studies (history, geography, economics); science; maths; technical education; home and career skills; art and music; library skills; physical education (three times a week); health; foreign language. A typical school day starts at 8.30 or 9.00 a.m. and ends at about 3.30 p.m. In many schools a day still begins with a salute to the American flag. Lessons are normally held five days a week, from Monday to Friday.

In most American schools television is widely used in teaching and there are television channels which offer a wide range of new educational shows. They are free, most do not have commercials and some provide teachers' guides. The American magazine Newsweek has called a television set "the second blackboard" and "the teaching tube". Many states are encouraging the use of television in class. Some, like Virginia and South Carolina, produce their instructional shows and deliver them via satellite.
