Naming Rights

In the past, our nation has named public structures after its heroes. That is especially true for schools.

In recent years, a new trend has begun to undermine the link between school names and civic virtue. One after another, schools across America are dedicating themselves not to role models, but instead to corporations. Instead of promoting character and honor, they are pushing products and the self-indulgence of the commercial culture.
