Help Find a New Name for Boone Elementary

The Local School Council at Daniel Boone Elementary decided in January to change the school’s name. The decision comes due to the school namesake’s history as a slave owner and his treatment of Native Americans.

The school has launched a survey to garner community input on a new name. It is available in English, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu. The deadline to submit feedback is Friday, March 25.

Boone Elementary is a wonderful neighborhood school. Its student body reflects the diversity and values of our community. I encourage everyone to help pick a name that will inspire our children to live up to their full potential.

You can pick any number of terrible problems facing Chicago right now: crime, financial issues, destruction of the Downtown business community, and so on.
