The New York chapter of mighty, mighty ACORN is now mighty, mighty NY Communities for Change.  It doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it?

As the national ACORN organization attempts to scam Americans by rebranding scandal-plagued local chapters, what will become of the New York educational institutions that share the ACORN name?

Will ACORN Community High School and ACORN High School for Social Justice continue to bear the name of a group associated with corruption, dishonesty, and fraud?  Or will students and parents step up and demand more dignified names for these schools?

Perhaps I shouldn’t give them any ideas. The ACORN High School for Social Justice might be preferable to the Cloward-Piven Institute of Community Organizing or the Che Guevara Revolutionary Arts Academy.
