West Rogers Park school named after slaveowner to be renamed
CHICAGO — A school in West Rogers Park is being renamed after a unanimous vote by the Chicago Board of Education.
Daniel Boone Elementary School, located at 6710 N Washtenaw Avenue, will now be called Mosaic School of Fine Arts. The school had been named after the slaveowner for nearly a century.
A 2020 review by the Chicago Sun-Times found 30 schools in the district were named after slave holders.
This will be the third of those schools to change its name.
