I'm gonna bet they get an F on that test.

Paloma Ave

Should they be called 'renaming advocates' or 'renaming activists'?

Just leave it as is. Some SJW will find a way to become a victim, no matter what name is picked!

Bruce Dickinson

It's clearly another agenda, Joe. C'mon, even Bruce Dickinson, a lifelong Democrat (originally from NY) knows that there's not a chance in hell that anyone identified from the Republican party will be used to name a school in Burlingame. This is California, where it's one way or the highway (to Texas!).

You bet that McKinley, Roosevelt, Washington, and Lincoln elementary schools will be the next ones renamed (in that order).

The old saying "those who don't learn from the past are condemned to repeat it" in California has turned into: "if we erase the past, there's nothing to learn because we are already so enlightened"

I'm sure all our community's children..who were out of schools for over 6 months during the pandemic, will really benefit from this naming crusade!

What a joke! These purported "enlightened" champions of this stuff are actually and ironically the most dumb, and narrow minded, and intolerant!

Joanne Bennett

Said it before (when SF was contemplating this) and will say it again, don't they have better things to focus on?

My daughter who lives in SF was furious that SF was contemplating this name change in the middle of a pandemic when the kids were still doing distance learning. If I were still a Burlingame school parent I would be too!

C'mon where are the priorities here and yes have already lost another daughter who took the highway to Texas!


Looks like a good way to get a recall campaign started in Burlingame.


There is another whiny Karen letter in the Daily Journal today about renaming BIS for Ginsburg. Ms. Soley should stop the sexist whining. RBG did nothing for education except reduce class sizes.
