Ben Carson, other Detroit schools could be in for name change

9 posts in this topic

Could Ben Carson's name be on the way out for a Detroit high school? And will Aretha Franklin's name make it onto a school?

The Detroit Board of Education Tuesday night approved a process for seeking new names for several existing schools — including the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine — and several new schools expected to open in 2019.

The science and medicine-themed school was named after the Detroit native before he became a member of President Donald Trump's cabinet. It was a decision made when the district was under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager.

Some board members, including LaMar Lemmons, have pushed for removing Carson's name from the school.

The board earlier this year approved a policy regarding the naming of schools — changes that paved the way for a change in the name of the Carson school. The Carson school is now operating in a building that previously held Crockett Career and Technical Center.

In Texas they have so much money they don't know what to do with it

 

They builds High Schools here that look like 4 years universities,  And then build them and wait a couple years until there are enough students to fill them.

 

I got my property Tax bill this month, almost $10K and over $6K was for the local school district.

One can only wonder.  They do keep asking for more though.

And I have heard some high school football teams have faculties that rival pros

    Looks like it's just a process in place to rename schools, and the circumstances around which the process may be used. It doesn't actually say any school will be renamed. Debating the process of renaming a school is not a big expenditure. Obviously renaming the school would be costly. The process should be used sparingly, but I don't think its a bad idea to have a standardized process in place.
