In Australia, about 70% schools are public (government or state) schools. The private (independent and Catholic) school sector makes up the remaining 30%.
About 0.7% of public schools are government selective schools. However, more non-selective schools offer Gifted and Talented Programs including
Select Entry Accelerated Learning in Victoria and Opportunity Classes in NSW.
Public schools are most affordable but they have school zones or catchment.
