Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Bing Act[edit]

Dear education experts: Is this old AfC submission about a notable topic, or should it be deleted as a stale draft? —Anne Delong (talk) 04:06, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Upmerging of Academic/Higher education country categories and subcategories[edit]

Please see my proposal to upmerge Category:Academia by country to Category:Higher education by country or vice versa (including the country subcategories). Hugo999 (talk) 02:13, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Children's Savings Accounts[edit]

Dear education experts: This old AfC draft was declined as being too essay-like. Can it be edited to be a useful topic? Is the information covered somewhere else? I found Coverdell Education Savings Account, but it seems to be about one specific American tax rebate, rather than about the general topic Education Savings Account, which is a redirect. —Anne Delong (talk) 22:15, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Addition of a Migrant Education page[edit]

I am a student at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and as part of a school project, I am planning to add a Wikipedia page on migrant education. In this article I will discuss the current issues that migrant workers and their families face achieving educational success, the related government policies surrounding migrant education, and the current ideas of how to move forward and improve it. I will mainly focus on the United States, but will also add a section that touches on migrant education in different countries. In the section “current issues,” I will discuss the general problems migrants face in education (such as language barriers, poverty, etc.). After this section, I will talk about the history of migrant education in the US, focusing on the 20th century and leading up to the modern day. After briefly explaining the historical trends of migration within the United States, I will address the different problems and solutions that have been tried through the past decades. After laying out this history of migrant education within the United States, I will go into detail on current and related policies and regulations in other regions of the world. Finally, I would like to discuss the different opinions on how to improve the availability and success of migrant families’ educational experiences. I will approach this from two angles by first discussing ideas for policy changes and governmental action and then by discussing the involvement of NGOs and other non-profit organizations.

Sources: I plan to use scholarly articles from Journals such as the International Journal of Educational Development and the "Journal of Latinos and Education." I will also draw on publications such as Scholars in the Field: The Challenges of Migrant Education, and "Migrant education: thirty years of success, but challenges remain."

Any advice on how to improve this page would be much appreciated! Thanks!
