School To Lose Controversial Name

Nov 16, 2016

A North Pole school will get a new name. The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Board of education approved a measure last (Tues) night to rename of Badger Road Elementary. The road is named after a North Pole area pioneer who plead guilty to child rape a century ago, but as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the name has long since transcended any connection to the man.
