Western education[edit]

Western education is currently a redirect to Secular education. This has been nominated for discussion at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2018 August 14#Western education about whether this is the best target and if not what would be better. You are invited to this discussion as your knowledge and opinions are likely to be valuable. Please respond there rather than here to keep discussion in one place. Thanks, Thryduulf (talk) 11:27, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

inaccurate language[edit]

"Adult learners fall in a specific criteria of being experienced, and do not have the high school diploma." is incorrect both grammatically and meaning wise. In fact, the single biggest predictor of adults returning to college is prior education. Ctskelly (talk) 01:38, 21 October 2018 (UTC)



For a number of years we have been experiencing a steady decline in the number of administrators as a result of attrition and a declining number of editors willing to consider adminship. Things have reached a point where we are starting to experience chronic backlogs in important areas of the project including noticeboards, requests for closure, SPI, CSD & etc. If you are an experienced editor with around two years (or more) of tenure, 10k edits give or take and no record of seriously disruptive behavior, please consider if you might be willing to help out the community by becoming an administrator. The community can only function as well as we all are willing to participate. If you are interested start by reading WP:MOP and WP:RFAADVICE. Then go to WP:ORCP and open a discussion. Over the next few days experienced editors will take a look at your record and let you know what they think your chances are of passing RfA (the three most terrifying letters on Wikipedia) as well as provide you with feedback on areas that might be of concern and how to prepare yourself. You can find a list of experienced editors who may be willing to nominate you here. Finally, I may not have this page on my watchlist, so if you want to reply to me directly please ping me. Thank you and happy editing... -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:06, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
