What sort of groups are schools in other countries in?

In the UK, some schools are part of a trust or a federation. These are distinct and it can be of interest if a school is part of some group or is under local authority control.

This has been tagged (mainly by me) with

But I have realised that these are not very global tags, however I don’t know much about how schools work in the rest of the world. I’ve noticed that the USA has school districts and I can imagine that the tagging could be translated to that quite easily.

I think it may be good to change the tagging to school:group, school:group:name and school:group:type (this is not a formal proposal for that yet).

Couldn’t this just be operator?

Academy trusts basically function as an operator, but federations can’t be tagged as such.
