I just think we should be talking more about the renaming of two middle schools. Just because it is now a done deal with the new signs up it doesn't mean we have forgotten about it.

I want to know what will happen if some other school gets hit as a namesake is discovered to have a skeleton in the closet. Will this happen again? Should we name schools after people? Should time and money be wasted once again on a whim from one family?

I can't see this going away.
