Fair use rationale for Image:Worcester State College Logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Worcester State College Logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Copyright problem removed[edit]

One or more portions of this article duplicated other source(s). The material was copied from: http://www.worcester.edu/About/Shared%20Documents/history.aspx. This material was introduced in this series of edits. For one example, compare the following:

  • From the article:

From the beginning, Worcester Normal School was distinguished by its progressive curriculum, established under the leadership of its first principal, E. Harlow Russell, and first apprentice supervisor, Rebecca Jones (1874-1912). Proponents of the Child Study Movement, Russell and Jones implemented the innovative practice of placing apprentice teachers in public school classrooms. Initially offering two- and three-year programs of study, Worcester Normal School’s curriculum evolved to meet the changing demands of the teaching profession. In 1921, the school awarded its first Bachelor of Science in education, under the leadership of its third and last principal, Dr. William B. Aspinwall.
