A high school in Bulgaria is reportedly going to dump Lenin as its namesake for Steve Jobs. And if it does, it probably won’t be the first school named after the Apple co-founder.
If reports are to be believed, a technical secondary school in Bulgaria would topple communist politician Vladimir Ilyich Lenin as its namesake in favor of the symbolic innovation and insight offered by Steve Jobs. (Or a famous scientist. The decision hasn’t been made, yet.)
Apple has always had a strong role in education and iPads are increasingly replacing books in schools from kindergarten to college. So it’s not surprising that a school wants to name itself after recently-departed Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
There is already Steve Jobs Day in the state of California, honoring innovations that “transformed an industry, and the products he conceived and shepherded to market have changed the way the entire world communicates,” said Governor Jerry Brown.
What, if anything, do you think should bear his name?
