Vote out those who support this. Local schools can form a private committee with their own resources to change a school’s name, if the community agrees. Sanchez’s and Collins’s diktats waste time and money, often for petty issues, like the Feinstein-named school.
Their blocking alumni’s weighing-in is arrogant and intolerant.This makes us look foolish and has already gone national (e.g., Fox, of course). It hurts Pelosi’s ability to project that she is not trying to lead the House as her constituency acts amidst a pandemic. Every time someone rams through something ideological far to the left of the community-norms, right-wing reactionaries get their wings.

Totally opposed to changing names of schools, buildings, everything. The cost is prohibitive! I recall the costs everyone incurred when they changed Army Street to Cesar Chavez Street. Everyone is broke. Money is scarce and the little that is available should be used for worthy causes such as providing free WiFi throughout the City so those being home schooled have access. The committee was never given the right, purpose, instruction, challenge or directive to change the names of the schools.
