So Board said that Wikinews is out of scope. Its nature is

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what
distinction you're trying to
make. In this context, those look like synonyms to me.
They aren't synonyms, although there is a lot of overlap. To inform
means to provide information to. Educating involves understanding and
skills too. I think Wikinews can both inform and educate, though.
