Tyler High is excellent for JT

So they renamed john tyler to just tyler.


So, it's still named after john Tyler, the slaveholder?

Precisely. The transitive property is not going to be taught in TISD anymore in hopes that less people will make the connection.

Didn't they look into renaming it a few years ago because (1) they offer 4 year degrees, (2) enrollment is greater than UTTyler (3) it gives the perception of an inferior education?

Even from all the positives of dropping "Junior" they still can't get it done.

At least he had some connection to Smith County... like being Lindale's finest plantation owner.
