It is not easy to define the limits of secondary education. Each person has periods in which he can receive education. The middle period of this time can be called the period for secondary education. Looking at it from the stand-point of society, the government has established a school system for the education of its people which can be called secondary education. With the individual the maximum period of receiving education is from six to twenty-four years of age. The period from twelve to eighteen is the suitable period to term the central part or the period of secondary education. Secondary education constitutes the center of any educational system. In the school of all modern nations the central portion is called secondary schools. Although the limits of the period vary slightly, yet in general they correspond. Now that we have defined secondary education it is well to see what the school laws say about secondary education.
