Personal taxation and domestic rates in the Isle of Man are considerably lower than in the United Kingdom. The education system of the Island is totally funded by Tynwald, and is organised through the Isle of Man Department of Education and Children. There are no controls by the UK Department for Education, UK Government or UK Funding Bodies.
