Hi!

I'm reading this sentence over and over again and it still doesn't make any sense to me. Could any of you be so kind as to read it and tell me if there's anything wrong with this part of the sentence:

"The private sector in education is small but socially important. These private schools are known by the confusing name public schools, of which the most famous are Eton (which the British princes attended) and Harrow. Many of these schools are also boarding schools."

It sounds rather confusing to me, but maybe I'm misinterpreting it and thinking in wrong direction.
Thanx!

These private schools are known by the confusing name public schools = the schools are privately operated, but they are called 'public schools'.

Does that help, Loojka?
