If you have been on the site recently, you may have noticed that educationbug.org has undergone a major upgrade. We took a look at all the categories and organization that had slowly evolved from the site’s early days in the first half of 2006, and rethought everything. When we were done, we had created a new hierarchy and organization that we hope will make our education articles easier to locate.
There are two main parts to the hierarchy. In the first section, all articles of every type are sorted by topic. This section is called “Article Topics,” and it has 11 top-level categories.
In the second section, articles related to specific types of schools and written for specific audiences are categorized by the schools and the audiences. This section is called “Finding Articles for Special Interests, and it has two top-level categories.
Each top-level category has two or more subcategories. Each article is placed in every sub-category in which it fits. For example, the article “Public School Uniform Debate” is filed under Other Education Issues and also in Public Schools, while the article “What Is Peer Pressure?” is filed under Safety and Parents.
The new hierarchy is shown below, to help you get the gist of the site’s new organization.
