Interstate 285

There is a requested move discussion taking place at Talk:Interstate 285#Requested move 2 December 2018 that people here may be interested in following. Thanks. - BilCat ( talk) 07:07, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Some proposed changes

Information to be added or removed: Georgia ranked 30th in the nation for educational performance, according to Education Week’s Quality Counts 2018 report. It earned an overall score of 73.0 out of 100 points and a grade of C. By comparison, the nation received a score of 75.2 or a C. Georgia posted a C-plus in the Chance-for-Success category, ranking 33rd on factors that contribute to a person’s success both within and outside the K-12 education system. Georgia received a mark of D-plus and finished 37th for School Finance. It ranked 11th with a grade of C on the K-12 Achievement Index.

Explanation of issue: Since I work for Education Week, who put out this report, I was instructed to request the edit rather than make it myself. I feel that this information about the quality of Georgia's K-12 schools would be a beneficial addition to the page and add something that it currently does not have.

Georgia (U.S. state) Georgia (state) – There’s the country Georgia and there’s the state called Georgia. People outside America usually call it the state of Georgia. Metric Supporter 89 ( talk) 00:13, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose. "State" could also mean "sovereign state", i.e. a country, so the proposed title is ambiguous. This move has been rejected before. PC78 ( talk) 01:24, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose, basically for the same reason why it was opposed on Talk:Georgia (U.S. state)/Archive 2#Requested move 23 November 2016. Worldwide, "state" is less specific, and could mean " sovereign state" or "nation state". There is no benefit from going from more-specific disambiguation to less-specific disambiguation. Zzyzx11 ( talk) 01:27, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose. Do not much make confused with the Georgia there is no case of WP:TWODABS that either are both the "sovereign country" and the "U.S. state". Let's get an early snow clause consensus to close. ApprenticeFan work 03:38, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose I think it's a bit US-centric to assume that "state" necessarily means "U.S. state". The existing title isn't much longer than the proposed one, let's err on the side of caution. PatGallacher ( talk) 13:27, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Fails WP:PRECISION since both are states (even if people don't commonly refer to the sovereign state as a state) and we don't usually use WP:PDABs but I would consider redirecting Georgia (state) to Georgia (U.S. state) since anyone who takes the trouble to qualify it with "state" is highly likely to be distinguishing from the country. The last RFD was in 2013 so we could probably have another. Crouch, Swale ( talk) 13:46, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
