[edit] The Grades are not in order

So, does anyone else think we should put the grades in chronological order by grade number, like... First grade, fourth, seventh, etc.? And then put the ambiguous larger vague broad school references in a section of "JUST SCHOOL, NOT GRADES IN ORDER" or something like that? I'll Sandbox this crap and put a link to the concept under this post ----J∃ffJMan 15:02, 3 February 2022 (UTC)

Also, mdash obsessives, there are some —'s on the article that you should get to squashin' ----J∃ffJMan 15:16, 3 February 2022 (UTC)

I mean like turning ampersand mdash semicolon into { { - - } } but without spaces, gnomesayn? ----J∃ffJMan 16:36, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
I personally think sorting the references to specific grades is unnecessary. There aren't too many references to particular grades; just a few mentions of the fourth and fifth grades, with a single mention of seventh grade. (Whether or not preschool and kindergarten are considered grades is up to you, though.)
The main reason I'm against this is because your concept gives me a big "I do what I wanna do! Who cares what anyone else thinks?!" vibe, especially the "BECAUSE I SAID SO HAHAHAHAHAHAHA" part. It's so unprofessional, it looks like you don't even care. I'm sure that if you decide to go through with the idea, you'll change it to make it better, but right now, it honestly looks like it was done by a two-years-old boy. — Keegster2 20:23, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
I wouldn't personally use quite that tone, but I agree that it's not necessary to separate references by grade, since the few references that specify a grade are spread out among several different grades. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 23:03, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
Gave a shot at ironing it out a bit, but I still don't think it adds much to the article. The references are so brief and scattered that it's almost more confusing to have things broken up this way. (and—even though I did do embarrassingly casual/vernacular edits of my own in my younger days—I do think that even if it's in the Sandbox one ought to keep wiki things at least semi-formal) -- Bleu Ninja 04:46, 4 February 2022 (UTC)
In response to the two-years old boy comment, I agree, um, also I was coasting off being insanely tired and I agree the sandbox should be more formal. ----J∃ffJMan 12:17, 4 February 2022 (UTC)
