Agree. Should have kept the name McKee....Come on, this is getting ridiculous. What if Cracker School was picked? Would people be upset???? NO. Double standard. Get out of the past. What- 250+ years ago? Come on

Can not believe the board gave in to those idiots. Why not change the name of the city too while you are at it? No crap McKee owned slaves. He was a wealthy land owner in that era. Twin Rivers? Why not call it Greater Allegheny? Get a life.

But the rivers are not identical twins? Why not Twin Oaks or Cornell Capers

You will know the name once the Rev approves. What a pathetic city. Glady moved. I could not stand paying taxes to such a disgusting weakly ran city. I do still travel threw Mckeesport on my way to work and do frequently stop for gas,coffee,etc but never again. They will not even get that small change.

I fully concur with your assessment. Add the hobos who feel they have a right to body search you and citizenry's over-reliance on the prothonotaries site, I would offer that we got trouble. Right here in McK City. Starting with a capital "M" which stands for Machine.

I honestly don't give a good poop or pee if John McKee is the name of the new school or if McKee owned slaves some 200 plus years ago. I do must agree that the school being in a predominant minority area of the city, and will be attended by a majority of minority students should be named after a darkie that has contributed to society in some honorable way.

I think that President's Academy will do it. We have Founders Hall to honor our founders, so why not President's Academy to honor all and our present President? That name is consisten with Founders Hall and very politically correct which is in vogue these days. And, we have a lot of streets named after Presidents and generals.

How about naming it "Access Hall" instead? All of the welfare trash in the city can send all of "their childrens" there. They can serve Huggies, & even Sunny-D's in the cafeteria. Sounds good? Wait, it gets better. Rent A Center can supply the furniture. The buses can have spinners, loud booming bass, etc... And guess what? They will have stroller parking for all of the children's childrens.

The Machine cut my right foot to keep me runnin' away from the 'Port. Now me and the Machine are one...ain't no accident that I got dragged away looking for wood for my drum...it be all good now, McK...all good now. Things be mo better if my ho daughter Kizzy be more involved with the intricate workings of the Machine. These younguns have no respect fo' the Machine ways, beyotches.

Ever notice that when Shadango posts it always gets racial? Probably needs to hang out with his buddy Sluggo and get on the Klan Rally circuit.

I cannot see any reason why this new school should not be named after possibly the greatest local legend/hero who saved countless lives why serving his country. PVT. Jeremy Easton a.k.a "Jarmin". Nobody deserves this more!

It took the MASD board and administration months to narrow down and refine the Cornell School new name. But only hours to recind it based on one person who did not even attend a public meeting on this subject.

Deplorable board leadeship.
