The San Francisco School Board voted to rename 44 San Francisco public schools.
Some of the schools that are being changed include:
- Lowell High
- Lincoln High
- Washington High
- Roosevelt Middle
- John Muir Elementary
- Feinstein Elementary
The schools have until April to come up with a name. Mayor London Breed put out a statement saying,
I understand the significance of the name of a school, and a school's name should instill a feeling of pride in every student that walks through its doors, regardless of their race, religion, or sexual orientation. In fact, the public elementary school I attended as a child was renamed for Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks, and I believe it is a name that instills pride for the community. This is an important conversation to have, and one that we should involve our communities, our families, ad our students.
