Last night he Newton School Committee tabled a petition to rename Newton South High School.
The petition was initially filed by Newton South geography teacher Joe Wilson. Said Wilson “as an educator it has always stuck in my craw that the name of our school was not technically correct”
Chair Ruth Goldman acknowledged that the school is indeed a bit to the east of due south but didn’t think that warranted the disruption of an official renaming without wide spread support from the community. Mr Wilson vowed to rally the community around the effort saying “it’s just not right”.
