SEA vs. HEC[edit]

In almost every state in the US state education agencies (SEAs) are separate entities that uniquely control the public, K-12 education system. Higher education coordinating boards, or commissions, are always separate entitires that uniquely control post-high school learning. I'll park the THECB here until someone starts the HEC page. - Freechild 14:07, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

I moved this info to Universities in the United States#Government coordination. – Freechild (BoomCha) 19:43, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Lists and Webpages[edit]

Would it be a good idea to provide a list of all of the state agencies and their webpages? — Chris53516 (Talk) 19:29, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

I would argue in favor of that, being that each SEA is inherently notable, and simply waiting for an article to be written about them. If I were to do it - which I won't - I would redline each state's appropriately named SEA and then add a citation link for their websites appropriately. Good luck. - Freechild 20:19, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
I started to add state tests to this page, and it's taking a while. I'll see what I can do... — Chris53516 (Talk) 21:37, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
I see that there is an external link with all of the links provided. Perhaps that's the best way to go, since Wikipedia is not a link farm. — Chris53516 (Talk) 14:19, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

I added the links, whether broken or not, for all of the states. It would be nice if someone could either find the existing article or start a new article for the state department. — Chris53516 (Talk) 15:24, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


This content [Superintendent of Public Instruction] should be moved to State education agency because it is redundant and confuses the issue of who is the SEA or state leader for education. It is close to forking. – Freechild (BoomCha) 07:47, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
