      Imagine a country where children do nothing but play until they start compulsory schooling at age seven. Then, without exception, they attend comprehensives until the age of 16. Charging school fees is illegal, and so is sorting pupils into ability groups by streaming or setting.

  4. (obsolete) Discipline; reproof; reprimand.
    He gave his son a good schooling.
  5. (obsolete) Compensation for instruction; price or reward paid to an instructor for teaching pupils.
