Run the power line to a light box in each room, then drop a switch leg from each light box.

The power line should daisy-chain to each box, with a "tap" off for the lights of each room.

If you do not have experience with lighting or switch logic, it would be much more safe for you to contract with a qualified electrician.

When a home circuit breaker opens the lights in some rooms go off but the lights in some rooms stay on. Explain why.?

The circuit breakers in a panelboard feed separate circuits. The lights that stay on are on a different circuit than the ones that go off. To fine the circuit that feeds the lights that stay on, go to the panelboard and turn off the breakers one by one until the lights go out. This is the circuit that feeds that circuit of lights. Remember that lights and receptacles can be on the same circuit together.

Why do schools keep on light all night?

Several possible reasons. Deters burglary . Allows lights to be on for late employees and extremely early employees. Some type specialty lights actually wear out quicker from being turned off and on..than being left on. Leaving lights on with main light switches in locked rooms....means that no one has to be there earlier to turn lights on or later to turn lights off for special events. No special employees have to be assigned or reprimanded when lights are always one. Easier for those employees who have no idea where the lights switches are, which wall, which circuit box, etc.

How many lights and outlets can be installed on one circuit?

Depends on if it is a 15 amp or 20 amp circuit. You can install no more than 12 outlets on a 20 amp circuit or 9 outlets on a 15 amp circuit. You can install no more than 1920 watts on a 20 amp lighting circuit or 1440 watts on a 15 amp lighting circuit. If it is a 20 amp circuit I would not install any more than 8 outlets and 4 lights. If it is a 15 amp circuit I would not install any more than 6 outlets and 3 lights. This only applies to living spaces like bedrooms, living rooms dining rooms, and not to kitchens, baths, utility rooms, garages, etc.

how many rooms are allowed on one lighting circuit?

Unless you do not have enough space in the service panel it is always a good idea to have each room on it's own circuit. If you want to put 2 rooms on a circuit just make sure those 2 rooms do not overload the circuit and wire it for a 20 amp circuit. Two bedrooms with 8 outlets each and 1 light each is about all you would want on the circuit. I would never put 3 rooms on the same circuit.

How many outlets to a breaker?

In the United States and in commercial and industrial installations a 20 amp circuit may have 13 receptacles and a 15 amp circuit may have 10. In homes there is no limit except common sense. I wouldn't put more than 2 rooms on the same circuit. this limits how much goes out if one breaker trips, especially since in homes your lights and receptacles are often on the same circuit.

Can you have multiple rooms on one circuit breaker?

You certainly can. You can also have a single room serviced by more than one breaker. Breaker assignments are based on expected power usage and type of home wiring. Bedrooms don't normally require a lot of power so several rooms' wall outlets can be on the same breaker. The ceiling lights also don't require much power and can be on the same breaker circuit. It also makes sense to have ceiling lights and wall outlets on different circuits so that if you need to shut one of the circuits for work or repair, you can still use the other for light and power. Some areas such as kitchen, garage, work room, laundry room can have appliances and equipment that require more power and should consider having their own circuit breaker.
