What is a Schools
The word school derives from Greek σχολή (scholē), originally meaning 'leisure' and also 'that in which leisure is employed', but later 'a group to whom lectures were given', school.
A school is an educational institution designed to provide learning space and learning environment for the teaching of students under the direction of teachers. Most countries have a system of formal education, which is sometimes compulsory.
In ancient India, schools were in the form of 'Gurukuls'. Gurukuls were traditional Hindu residential teaching schools, usually the teacher's house or monastery. Today schools in India are commonly known by the Sanskrit words Vidyashram, Vidyalaya, Vidya Mandir, Vidya Bhavan. In southern languages, it is known as Pallikudam or Padasalai. During the Mughal rule, madrasas were started in India to educate the children of Muslimparents.
