Is opening a school difficult?
Many people think of opening a school at times. But people do not often try to open a school due to many reasons including lack of proper knowledge. Opening a school seems very difficult to many people as there are so many requirements we need to fulfill before opening a school. If you want to open a government funded school, it may take you years to get proper authorization from the government and build the school building. But if you want to open a private school it is relatively easier. You only need to have a reasonable amount of funding for the school.
As it would be a private school, you single-handedly would have to pay for the electricity fees and other fees of the school. So, you can also collaborate with other people in opening the school and you can share the income among yourselves.
