I have no problem with renaming the school. I don't see what the big deal is, in this case anyway.

I know these schools. Their problem is single/crappy parents who are not invested in their children’s education, not the name of the school. But this is the idiot liberals response.

Don’t you EVER get tired of this BS?

And? The two have nothing to do with each other. This could have been a top tier school and you would still complain.

Single parent homes that are dysfunction are a problem. Changing a school's name is not a problem to me automatically. In this particular case, this isn't a problem. You bring up something that has nothing to do with the subject because you didn't like what I had to say.

While they do -want- to do that, they don't have to. The colossal stupidity is, sadly, home-grown.

Ever thought about why these things you don't like are home grown?

No one has given me any reason as to why I personally should be worried. No one.

why should they rename it


what was wrong with Monroe?


from wiki


As president of Virginia's constitutional convention in the fall of 1829, Monroe reiterated his belief that slavery was a blight which, even as a British colony, Virginia had attempted to eradicate. "What was the origin of our slave population?" he rhetorically asked. "The evil commenced when we were in our Colonial state, but acts were passed by our Colonial Legislature, prohibiting the importation, of more slaves, into the Colony. These were rejected by the Crown." To the dismay of states' rights proponents, he was willing to accept the federal government's financial assistance to emancipate and transport freed slaves to other countries. At the convention, Monroe made his final public statement on slavery, proposing that Virginia emancipate and deport its bondsmen with "the aid of the Union

Well, that's definitely something that won't be happening in this town. The biggest high school in town is named for Monroe. We also have the excellent Monroe Museum and Library and Monroe's birthplace museum and park are only a county away. He's firmly ensconced in our historic fabric here, as are Washington and Lee.
