I've merged plenty of articles in my time,
but the recent trend towards
pasting together a whole bunch of small articles on narrowly-focused
topics into one gigantic mega-article with a section on each, leaving a
redirect behind, seems like a backwards way to go about it. All the same
material is still there, it's just harder to find the specific thing
you're looking for.
In general I agree, but schools seem the ideal article topic to be
merging: a group of small, relatively identical articles about a group
of relatively identical institutions.
A better merge would probably be of multiple schools into an article
on the school district (or whatever grouping is used locally). And
then only if there isn't much being said about the individual schools.
More than one paragraph on one school and it should have its own
