What’s in a name?

What’s in a name? It is more important what is going on in the building. Or are you saying the Haight School community is espousing the philosophy of its namesake? 

Who remembers who these people are or what they believed? Lum, Paden, Littlejohn or Sweeney? 

My question is, why do you want to change the name? Is it an Alamedan or someone who has had their 15 minutes of fame in the newspaper?
