Spanish term or phrase: centros concertados (Schools)
This refers to a kind of school/school system in Spain; it's not a public (as in State) school, so why don't they call it private? Or is it only 'semi-' private?

I'd like and EXPLANATION (in preference to a translation), as I suspect an equivalent may not exist.

English translation:colegio privado con subvención
Explanation:
Hola,

Un centro concertado es un centro privado que recibe una subvención del estado y por lo tanto los alumnos no han de pagar para asistir. No obstante, al ser privado, no depende del Ministerio de Educación para ciertas cuestiones como la contratación de profesores.

Espero que te sirva de ayuda y mucha suerte con tu traducción.

Explanation:
Private schools may be divided into subsidized (centros concertados) and non-subsidized (centros no concertados) establishments, depending on whether they receive public funding.
