We are on a path of apology for our nations history. It is pathetically disgusting we have decided to do so.

Pretty much sums it up:
“Mississippi's Board of Education requested the governor’s office to declare the Jackson public school system in a state of emergency. A review stated the school system lacked certified teachers and proper procedures for record keeping, disciplinary action and other severe problems.”

But the priority of renaming the school for Obama should pretty much solve everything else.

You know, as long as it's the local people making the name change, I think it's fine.
I think the people who send their kids to the school should be able to name it what they want.

The decision to rename Davis IB Elementary School in Jackson, Mississippi, was announced Tuesday night—the result of a months-long effort by parents to rid the school of its Confederate reference in favor of honoring the 44th president of the United States.

Janelle Jefferson, president of the school's PTA, said the new name will be more fitting for a school with a student population that is 98 percent black.

Probably not.

When I was in High School, there was a move to change the mascot (Hornets)
I remember the principal explaining how it could be done, but today they are still the Hornets.

It's hard to actually get people to go through the process and vote on these things. 
98% of the kids in the school are black, if they want to change the name of the school to a black president, I got no dog in that fight.
I don't live there, I don't pay school taxes there, if they want to name it Snoop Dogg High (pun intended), I say knock yourselves out.

My objection is when people from elsewhere get involved in demanding changes to local stuff.

Johnny, if you’re implying that as long as it’s “local” decisions leading to the the action to do something, then that makes it okay, I would beg to differ. 
It appears “local” actions have lead to uncertified (unqualified) teachers.  Local decisions have lead to improper record keeping.  Local actions have lead to student disciplinary problems and “other severe problems”.   Just because decisions have been made locally, doesn’t mean they’re good decisions.
My only comment was meant as an observation they’re spending time worrying about changing a school’s name, when they obviously have much greater problems that need to be dealt with.  Personally, I couldn’t care less what the name of the school is.  But they are doing a grave disservice to their students by not having qualified teachers and allowing disciplinary problems to disrupt the learning environment.

I never meant to imply that local decisions are always good decisions.

I'm just saying that if the people that pay the property taxes and send their kids to that school want the change the name,
I don't see what the big deal is.

OTOH, if some goomba in Washington decides to tell them to change the name, I see that as something completely different.
