Q:

What is a postsecondary school?

A:

A postsecondary school is defined as any educational institution that provides classes to students who have already completed high school. Postsecondary schools could be trade schools, traditional colleges or graduate schools.

High school is considered secondary education and comes after the primary education that occurs during elementary school years. Students are expected to remain in secondary school until graduation or until they reach a certain age at which they can decide that they no longer want to pursue an education. High school is governed by federal laws, and school districts are expected to do everything they can to make sure students are learning. Federal and state governments set the standards by which students should be learning in the secondary years.

Postsecondary education is also governed by federal laws, but these laws are less restrictive than the ones that dictate secondary education. Federal laws are in place to help students have a chance at a postsecondary education, but these laws do not work as hard at pushing the students to receive this type of education. Federal laws also govern the way that students are accepted into postsecondary education. Because it can be costly, the federal government provides relief for students who qualify on a financial basis.

Peer culture preferences such as clothing, slang and musical taste affect high school popularity because friendships are based on similarity.
