Anti-American San Francisco School Board Declares George Washington, Abraham Lincoln ‘Unworthy’ For School Names

Share this story:

The San Francisco school board has voted to remove the names of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln from public schools after officials deemed them and other prominent figures, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, unworthy of the honor.

After months of controversy, the board overwhelmingly voted 6-1 Tuesday in favor of renaming 44 San Francisco school sites with new names with no historic connection to slavery, oppression, racism, or similar criteria, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Critics called the process slapdash, with little to no input from historians and a lack of information on the basis for each recommendation. In one instance, the committee didn’t know whether Roosevelt Middle School was named after Theodore or Franklin Delano.
