BANG! SCHOOL NAME CHANGED!McKinley should be next! | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN

BANG! SCHOOL NAME CHANGED!McKinley should be next!

Last Friday, September 17, the State Board of Education voted to change the name of Central Middle School to Princess Ruth Ke?elik?lani Middle School. It went into effect immediately! When students and faculty returned to school on Monday, their school had a new name!

This decisive action by the BOE is very encouraging to those of us advocating for changing the name of President William McKinley High School, which shares the same historical origin with the former Central Middle School.

Both schools started as the Fort Street English Day School, which was founded in 1865 at a church on Fort Street in Honolulu. In 1869, Princess Ruth Ke?elik?lani offered to house the school at her palace, Keoua Hale.
