Thank you for your message. I'll answer your questions individually:
- 1) My understand is that a public school is defined as being a member of HMC, furthermore SDC is in the "Public schools in london" category. There are also many schools that do not claim to be a public school, however are defined as such on wikipedia. As a matter of fact very few schools make public "public school" claims – the expression is generally made in private (for example check out many major public school web site such as Harrow, they formally use the word independent).
- 2) Many articles that list the HMC, mention that the organisation is prestigious.
- 3) Again, many articles list schools as fee-paying. Most people understand the differentiation between a public and private school in the international context. Defining a school as "public" or "independent" can lead to confusion if the reader is not educated on the English definition.
If you need examples of other articles, I'll compile a list for your review later (quite busy at the moment). Please let me know your thoughts. Many thanks. IP 126.96.36.199 (should really sort out a wikipedia account)
ICA and CIA
It was from a 1995 article in the Art History journal. I will have to look it up but will get back to you and post the reference. Serge Guilbaut has done the most work on the CIA sponsoring modern art exhibitions in the 1950s and 60s so if you are interested in that topic look him up.Piersmasterson 17:04, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free media (File:The_Conservatoire_logo.PNG)
Thanks for uploading File:The_Conservatoire_logo.PNG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 02:00, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
