As we (some of us) head back to school, a question:
Lots of high schools, elementary and middle schools have been named after presidents–Jefferson, Kennedy, Washington among others. Some have been named after a direction like Fargo North or South Junior High. A few have been named after things like Red River High School. A few have been named after an especially excellent teacher or administrator.
But in the history of education has there ever been a school named after a particularly devoted janitor? What about an especially good lunch lady? Why not? Schools couldn’t function without staff any more than they could manage without their faculty or administrations. Shouldn’t there be a school somewhere named for a janitor or lunch lady?
