School Alexander Bain.
I have removed this section (see below). In its entirety, it was an unsourced and uncited claim for an extant institution, appears to show Conflict of interest, and to be in conflict with Wikipedia's notNPOV. If this school is notable enough to be included we should see cited independent historical background of the school proving that notability, this showing that it is an "important and respected school" in the context of the subject of the article. There is always a problem with adding information (and in this case badly constructed information) about something current or 'living'. Knowledge gained and noted always resides in the past, even if it's the recent past, and should be presented as such; this is the nature of an encyclopedia. The only reference for this school and its supposed importance is its own (in part promotional) current web site; this shows that it is not a viable or valuable addition to the subject.
Section text as was: There is a school in Mexico City that was inspired on the pedagogue Alexander Bain. Alexander Bain School teaches 3 languages: English, Spanish, and french. It is an important and respected school of Mexico City.
There is this very awkward sentence currently:
"In 1843 he contributed the first review of the book to the London and Westminster.alex was fax inventor"
Okay seems it's true, I'm just going to remove the fax phrase, does not really belong there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fax#Wire_transmission — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:36, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
