  1. Board of education

    A board of education or school committee is the title of the board of directors or board of trustees of a school, local school district or higher administrative level. The elected council helps determine educational policy in a small regional area, such as a city, county, state or province. It usually shares power with a larger institution, such as the government's department of education. The name of the board is also often used to refer to the school system under the board's control. The government department which administered education in the United Kingdom before the foundation of the Ministry of Education was also called the Board of Education.
