Early College High School[edit]

This posting is misleading. Early College High School is THE NAME of a school in Costa Mesa. This school is part of the Early College High School initiative, however other schools that are part of this inititave have other names. The title of this posting should be "the Early College High School Initiative". "Early College High School" pertains to the school in Costa Mesa with that specific name. When searching for "Early College High School" a user is taken to this general site for the Early College High School Initiative, not the site for Early College High School. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:45, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

No, you are wrong, it should not be renamed to that. If there are three or more schools named "Early College High School" that had Wikipedia pages, then there should be a disambiguation page linked from Early college high school stating "Early College High School redirects here, see Early College High School (disambiguation)". At the disambiguation page it would link to 3 pages Early College High School (Salem, Oregon), Early College High School (Laredo, Texas), and Early College High School (Colorado Springs, Colorado). The last hypothetical page is an example of a third link. (There is in fact, among other schools, an ECHS on the Roy J. Wasson Academic Campus which is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado; it is currently in the process of being renamed due to having a generic/designator name.) -- (talk) 09:36, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

POV puffery[edit]

I took a first pass at removing thepuffery in this piece, but it still has a heavy tone of celebrating schools, along with getting into non-vital specifics for certain schools, rather than giving verifiable information of general interest. --Nat Gertler (talk) 17:59, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

5/5/11 Re-edit[edit]

Hi, I deleted the list of schools because it only included 11 out of the present 230 in the national initiative. I replaced it with the list of intermediary organizations that provide technical assistance, etc. to all the schools. I also provided some stats around student achievement from recent publications by Jobs for the Future, manager of the initiative. I hope they provide context without sounding promotional. That same concern is why I kept the opening paragraphs very short. Finally, I subbed out "Bill Gates" for the Gates Foundation as the funding source behind the ECHSI. If you have questions, please email me at —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jffboston (talkcontribs) 20:45, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 14:39, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
