    I was reading an article in New York today, about a school being named after Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes, etc) and someone said,

    "Why do they name schools after politicians and rich people? Why don't they name it after a great teacher that inspired people?"

    That got me to thinking, what teacher would you want your school named after, and why?



    Here is the article if you're interested:
