State Schools are a policy where the government runs institutions that provide free education to citizens.

State schools are one of the best methods for increasing a nation's average Literacy rate, though if not funded well enough they could lead to Teacher Shortages and Teachers Strikes. They also cut down on the effects of Poverty and reduce Unemployment by hiring new State Employees. State schools are favored by the Poor, the Socialists, and the State Employees who work in state-run education facilities, but are derided by the Capitalists, especially as they reduce their membership levels.
