Booker T. Washington for the Performing and Visual Arts School

On the agenda for a Called Board Meeting for Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 4:00 pm, the Dallas Independent School District will address the issue of "Adoption of Clarification of Action Taken on August 25, 2005, regarding board file No. 46372 Consideration of Proposed Names for New and Existing Facilities, regarding Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts".

As I understand it, when you go by the campus on Flora Street, the school name is not on the building, but on a new wing of the school is Hammon Arts Magnet. It look like once again they have moved to remove the black history of Dallas. What in the world are our school board members doing?

As a graduate of Arts Magnet High School at Booker T. Washington High School, I am most happy for the renovations. It has been a long time coming. As for the DISD Trustee Board, what else do you expect with Carla Ranger as our Community's lone supporter. It is time to clean house.

I went by the school on yesterday and I agree that the renovations were needed and I too am very happy that they were done. I also agree that Carla Ranger is our lone community supporter.
