Way forward[edit]

I see no benefit in creating a series of one-liners on each school. My suggested way forward is:

  • Set a redirect for each school to here.
  • Add information on the individual schools, creating headings as required.
  • If there is so much information on a particular school that it unbalances the article then break the school out.

Having many negligible articles makes it hard to navigate and unhelpful to the reader who clicks a link only to find no new information. Much better to have it all in one place at the moment. TerriersFan 04:54, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I don't see the benefit in having this article in the Faulkner County category and the Conway, Arkansas category. The city category is a subcategory of the county category. Little Rock School District is not in the Pulaski County category. -- Ben (talk) 16:49, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Swednaneb, are the district's boundaries confined to the city? Or do they extend beyond the city, as I suspect is the case with many Arkansas school districts? WhisperToMe 17:02, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure. I'm looking around a little bit. Even if they did, I don't think that's reason enough to include it in the Faulkner County category. If you take a look at the Faulkner County, Arkansas category, you will see that it's all cities. Except for the entry for Conway Public Schools. It sticks out. -- Ben (talk) 17:17, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

There are some parts of many U.S. counties that are not within any city - those parts are called "unincorporated areas" - Faulkner County has many areas not a part of any town or city that are served by the school districts. See http://maps.google.com/ and enter Conway, Arkansas - notice how many parts of the county are not organized into any city. WhisperToMe 17:46, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I am still not convinced it belongs. I think it's an eyesore. But I'm not going to change it. I'm sure there are lots of school districts in lots of county categories. This is the only one I have seen. But then again, I've only looked through two thirds of the Arkansas county categories. -- Ben (talk) 18:49, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Do we really need that picture with the CG Wampus Cat? -- Swerdnaneb 20:29, 24 June 2008 (UTC) I don't think so but oh well... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.31.215.253 (talk) 01:52, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
