School to vote on renaming Jefferson Elementary

President’s slave holdings perturb families, teachers

Parents, students and teachers at Berkeley’s Thomas Jefferson Elementary School will soon vote on whether to rename their school because the nation’s third president was a slave owner.

The question of whether to rename the school has been debated for more than two years – since several teachers, including an African American mother of three former Jefferson students, said Jefferson’s moniker offended them and suggested a name change. </i>

Ok, these people are morons. Do they not realize that without people such as Jefferson, THEY WOULDN’T BE HAVING THIS DEBATE AT ALL? Some folks need to realize that the world doesn’t revolve around their “offended” rear quarters.
