What's in a School Name?

The Kansas City Star reports that schools are less frequently being named after historical figures and are instead becoming namesakes for geographical features or forces of nature. The article is based on this report out of the Manhattan Institute, that found that community leaders are no longer naming schools for Abraham Lincoln or George Washington or even more modern political figures. Instead the trend appears to be towards naming schools with nature in mind, like Windy Pointe or Sandy Springs.
