Google School

There are reports from some schools that they cannot display reviews from its parent body or others on Google Maps and Google My Business. Joy Hawkins said in the Local Search Forums "Reviews left for schools in Canada were not showing up yesterday but are today. Reviews that were left in the USA are still not showing up."

Joy is asking Google what is up and is waiting to hear back. But it seems like there may be a longer wait time for reviews to work on schools? Maybe there was some recent review spam on schools that caused it? Maybe there is a bug? It is unclear.

Supposedly this has happened before, specifically with schools. Earlier this year, there is this thread with similar issues.

Is your school having issues getting reviews? Do you think this is a feature or bug?
