Local education systems

Each country has its own educational system (and sometimes even not only one). That's why community of each country decide which values should be used for tags below. However if role and level is similar to some other value used in other countries, you should use that similar tag. E.g. for USA where higher education institutions are called "colleges", they however should use education=university instead of education=college.
