Here is your opportunity to share your own comments on the proposed Monroe School Name Change.
What a terrible idea, just like renaming Lake Calhoun. Changing the name doesn't change the past -- it masks it from our youth. Do you want future generations to not know about our countries history -- good and bad? Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Go down this path and there are hundreds of elements that will be erased -- street names, parks, schools, lakes, buildings, monuments, laws, cities, states, and more. Why work under the very insulting assumption that our kids (and adults) can't understand the past, learn from it, and use that knowledge to build a better future? Teach the past, respect our history, quit white-washing the legacy we've lived with. Stop tearing down things like historical monuments that were built to help us preserve our heritage. This has to stop.
