This reference keeps getting deleted or moved around. I think it is notable, since the Brooklyn school is explicitly modeled after BLS, copying many of its traditions. I thought the History section was the best place for this, but perhaps not. It's currently in the Miscellaneous section, but this sectionshould in fact go away—see WP:TRIVIA—or perhaps be renamed something like "Popular references". What do people think? —johndburger 02:43, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Because Brooklyn Latin was modeled after the style of education at BLS, perhaps the Academics section is best. --Pgp688 00:00, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Well done. Only problem I can see is that your reference for oldest school is not convincing. Obviosly we need a 3rd party source ... and a believable one. This article can go to GA and become a top article too. Any takers? Victuallers 16:03, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Failed "good article" nomination
The Good Article criteria specifically requires that an article,
at minimum, provides in-line citations from reliable sources for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons
This article contains many large sections without a single in-line citation, including claims that could (without prior knowledge or proper attribution) be called grandiose. As hold periods are only provided for articles that already meet the major criteria but need minor work, I must fail the article without one. Please provide in-line citations per the quoted criteria before renominating the article. There are other areas in the article (such as the inadequate length of the lead section) to reevaluate in comparison to the GA criteria. If you feel this decision was in error, you may seek a reassessment. Thank you for your work so far, VanTucky Talk 23:38, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
18th century Latin-school movement
Its curriculum follows that of the 18th century Latin-school movement, which holds the classics to be the basis of an educated mind.
An intriguing claim, specifically that there was a 18th century Latin-school movement, for which there is no citation. Furthermore, there appears to be nothing in any current article in English on Wikipedia that supports directly or indirectly this claim. The Wikipedia article that I thought might shed some light on this claim, Classical education movement, does not. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:50, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
