Change the name to acknowledge an outstanding Philadelphian who benefitted the lives of many young people while giving students (andthe community)a school name to celebrate! ...Let's stop perpetuating the glory of a historical figure who championed oppression and hated Philadelphia.

My granddaughter attends this school, I am a retired elementary school teacher, I don't like the name of it now and wholeheartedly support the desire to name it after someone whom the student body can respect.

We should not honor those who commit genocide. This should be a no-brainer.
