Aren't schools normally named after dead presidents? Is MD just jumping the gun or wishful thinking?

It appears that MN has beat D.C. to the name. DC can have Barry Soetoro Elementary, but I still think that would make a good jazz group name.

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Four men were arrested Tuesday during a burglary at the Obama Elementary School in St. Paul.

The men were found inside the school they were arrested and booked on burglary charges.

Four men were found inside the school; all were arrested without incident. Investigators believe that the four suspects entered the school by breaking a ground floor window. The suspects appeared to have entered several classrooms, including one where a large flat screen television was torn off a wall. The TV was found nearby on the floor. Officers had all four suspects in custody before any items were removed from the school.

The four suspects are expected to be charged with third Degree Burglary. They are Andre Moody, 30, Xavier Toliver, 20, Richard Regis, 19, and Ervin Lovelace, 19.

Are you sure it's the same Obama? I mean, it is a common name, somewhere. Could be anyone.

The school was supposed to be called "amoeba" but they couldn't spell it right. Oh well, means the same thing anyway.

It looks like the school was named for Mr. and Mrs. Obama

St. Paul elementary school to get Obama name

After intense debate about Webster Elemetary’s new name, the board voted 5-1 to rename it after Barack and Michelle Obama.

By EMILY JOHNS, Star Tribune

The St. Paul school board voted 5-1 Tuesday night to rename one of the district's elementary schools "Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary."

The vote came after board members received intense feedback about the proposed change -- most of it negative -- from community members.

Students, staff and community members at Webster Magnet Elementary voted earlier this month to change the school's name. Webster is in its first year of a service learning program, and the school wanted a new name to reflect the shift in focus.

"We talk about, so often, that what we do is for the children, for kids," said board member Tom Goldstein. "Our job is to inspire kids, and these kids got inspired. They went to the trouble to process and pick this name. They could have picked ... George Washington Carver, Martin Luther King, they could have picked Sojourner Truth, they didn't. They were inspired by Barack Obama."

Tom Conlon, the board's lone Republican, opposed the change. The school's history "is being taken away from them," said Conlon, who had suggested that the school name a room or part of the school after Obama, "and I think that's tragic."

About a dozen community members spoke to the board about the name changing, voicing opinions ranging from calling Obama a socialist, to suggesting that the board wait until he is out of office to change the name, to saying that becoming the first African-American president is a worthy enough accomplishment to name a school after him.

Citizen Jeanne Anne LaRose opposed the change.

"President Obama has been in office less than four months and he has no legacy," she said, "It appears the renaming is a political statement."

The school's site council, made up of parents and community members, put the Obama name and "Webster Service Learning Elementary" on the ballot. Students, staff and St. Paul residents were invited to cast ballots. The Obama name came away with roughly 60 percent of the 854 votes cast.

It is meant to honor the Obamas' commitment to service learning, Principal Lori Simon said.

According to district policy, new school names, programs, mascots and logos "shall reflect the diversity of the district," and need to be approved by the school board "in consultation with the school community." Board chairwoman Kazoua Kong-Thao has said that the board will now look more closely at that policy.
