Early Years Education[edit]

I'd like to suggest two edits to this template, but I'm not being bold! Rixs (talk) 09:07, 2 October 2009 (UTC) First, I'd like to add a row for Early Years Education, mentioning Early education, Pre-school education, Kindergarten, and perhaps a couple of others. Second, I notice that Comprehensive school is listed by 'scope' whereas it should probably be by funding.[reply]

Free School Error[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} free school is miscategorized. The term does not refer to the funding model of the school but rather the pedagogical model. Free schools can be based upon any funding model including public, private, charter, etc.

Free School should be moved from "By Funding" to "By Style of Education" Sumguy90 (talk) 15:07, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

I just changed to a standard navbox format and redid many of the sections. This navbox almost seems without direction. It really needs some work to clean it up. I'm only comfortable with the three generic types of schools. Beyond that I wonder what this template should contain. Vegaswikian 22:26, 23 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]


Why is 'University' in the Tertiary section? So far as I am aware it is classed as 'Higher Education' throughout much of the world. (talk) 00:05, 9 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

All-through school[edit]

I have created a stub for All-through school. It needs adding to the nav box. But where? Ideally straddling primary and secondary in the By Educational stage section, wouldn't you think? Patient12 (talk) 22:50, 7 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. Zhaofeng Li [talk... contribs...] 11:03, 29 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Major changes. Added several school types[edit]

  • Added: Middle school, Adult education, Bible college, Religious school, Inclusive education.
  • "By style / method": Removed "method" as the school types listed do not restrict themselves to a particular teaching method. Added "purpose" as it better captures the gist. I also grouped the many religious school types into one group, and progressive schools into a group.
  • Took out some that are purely an issue of location into "By location".
  • Moved Folk high school to Progressive education, as the principles are very similar.
  • Grouped Sudbury school and Anarchistic free school under the umbrella Democratic school.
  • Proposal #1: I propose that the template is renamed to "Types of educational institutions" as it covers universities, institutes of technology, home-schooling, kindergarten, etc. which in English are rarely defined as schools.
  • Proposal #2: Move Specialist school to By style / purpose as it has little to do with funding or eligibility but rather the contents of the curriculum. As such it fits better with Music school, Magnet school, etc.
