Schoolyard Bullies Come for Daniel Boone

A plan is underway to change the name of a Chicago grammar school I attended. Daniel Boone, under a reign of political self-righteousness, is now a problem. The old pioneer apparently kept seven slaves and took over the lands belonging to the natives (as we speak now). (His daughter Jemima was also kidnapped by a group of Cherokee-Shawnee raiders, but let that pass.) Because of these crimes, the Chicago Public Schools Office of Equity decided Boone was a “reputable figure in history” and cannot be allowed to have a school named after him.

The question about a new name was raised in March at what Washington Judges’ Abigail Adcox described as a “live forum for the renaming process dedicated to parents, guardians, employees and community members are ‘Black, Indigenous, [or] People of color. ‘ ‘The school’s neighborhood is now a mixture of East Asians and Orthodox Jews. Most Jewish children attend religious day schools.
