USAGE NOTE: In GB, students usu. refer to those in post-secondary education. Younger ones are usu. called pupils. However, secondary-school pupils in Britain have begun to call themselves school students. In the US, the term students is used for those at a university and in secondary school -- college students, high-school students. Children at (BE)/in (esp. AE) primary schools are usu. called pupils in the US, and almost always in GB. In CE, one can differentiate between a student of Freud ('a student of Freud's ideas') and Freud's student ('one who was taught personally by Freud').
