PAUSD board: please reinstate Fred Terman as a namesake option

This petition had 168 supporters

We support a fair and legitimate consideration of the renaming or rededication of Terman MS to Frederick Terman alone. We contend that the voice of the community has not yet been heard on this matter.

We represent a variety of perspectives and points of view, and suggest that Fred as namesake represents a potential win-win for the community as a whole. We further suggest that Fred as namesake sends a positive message about our community's values and strengths, in no way condoning Lewis Terman's or David Starr Jordan's eugenic beliefs and advocacy. We believe all PAUSD students have the potential to differentiate between father and son, and to flourish at a school bearing the name of Frederick Terman.

Thank you for your consideration!
