We get so many questions that are about education but that are off topic.... Well, I noticed that Site 51 has a proposed "Education" site. If this gets off the ground, we'll finally have someplace to send people with many of those off-topic questions!

To get started, the proposal needs "followers."

Check it out!

    "We get so many questions that are about education but that are off topic.... " I don't know about those. Could you give some examples? Apr 5, 2018 at 12:31

The Education proposal has been deleted due to inactivity at least twice (e.g., this was an earlier Education proposal). The Primary and Secondary Education proposal has been closed due to inactivity and will eventually be deleted. The only educationally relevant proposal that I see is Home Schooling which is an obvious edge case.

There have been a number of these education type proposals in the past and we have discussed these. See for example:

Just noticed a proposed "Education" .SE site


Should we create a site to help teachers with classroom technology?

  • Thanks for the two links at the end of your post. I had found the first; it's from five years ago. I hadn't found the second (which is interesting but lacking in follow-up). // Suddenly, the Site51 proposal is gone. Strange coincidence. Apr 5, 2018 at 16:03

    @aparente001 I don't know what you mean by lacking in follow-up. There was a proposal, some of us followed it. It failed like all the others before it.

  • Please don't take my comment about lack of follow-up personally. I saw that there was a proposal discussed at academia.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1950/…. It's clear that it died at some point, since it's no longer listed at Area51. I don't know how close it got or how much support accumulated, since there were unfortunately no updates posted at academia.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1950/…. Apr 5, 2018 at 17:48
