So, if I were to construct a sentence that began as a question but ended as a sentence, which punctuation mark should I use.

For instance: "What did you think of him because I thought he was great." OR "What did you think of him because I thought he was great?"

My gut instinct would be the first example because I'm not questioning whether or not he's great. My thoughts are already established as such. Therefore, a question mark would be inadequate. However, it feels funny to end a sentence that started with When/Where/What/Who with a period. So...

Also, "Furthermore, the claim also brings in the question of, what is the purpose of schools, and the complex ways schools are a place of formal and informal education for children."

Is this sentence grammatically correct? Thanks. I have lived in the states for five years; I'm currently a college student, and I'm embarrassed to say that I still struggle with understanding the nuances of English grammar.

Actually, would that be "English Grammar" or "English grammar"?

For me, I always use this pattern: What did you think of him, because I thought he was great. OR What did you think of him? because I thought he was great.

BR.
