What Should We Rename Woodrow Wilson High School?

I've got your answer.
By |

There is a move afoot to rename Woodrow, in East Dallas, because the eponym was a racist. Princeton, in fact, has removed the name from its public policy school. As a Woodrow parent myself, I am conflicted out of this discussion and can’t tell you what I think, but I have the new name for the school.

Near Woodrow is the former Randall Park, recently renamed for former Dallas Park Department director Willis Winters. I know Winters a little bit. Great guy. Not a racist.

A lot of the Woodrow HS iconography features the double Ws. You see where I’m headed.
