Schools, and especially elementary schools, are summarily named in honour of far less accomplished people than Barack Obama before he was elected president... But don't take it from me, look at home town and tell me how many elementary schools are named after a president of the harvard law review who became an elected senator and accomplished author.
Perhaps we should start preparing a holiday for Obama as well. After all, he has earned for all that he has done.
