US-centric text in Schools page

Title
US-centric text in Schools page

Short, concise description of the idea
Reference to "state schools" is overly specific

Full description of the idea
On the page for adding a new school, instead of saying "For state schools, add the city/campus after a dash (ex: University of Texas - Austin)" you should just say "For schools with multiple locations, add the city/campus after a dash (ex: University of Texas - Austin)"

Why? Well, state schools aren't the only ones with multiple campuses... and the same text shows up in countries that don't even have states.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More comprehensible for non-US users.
  • More accurate.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None other than the trivial effort of some LJ developer fixing the text.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Change a string literal - easy enough for a programmer to do.
