A concerned teacher writes in about the new Eric Solorio Academy High School on 54th/St. Louis: "The school was named orginally Ignacio Zaragoza and set to be a CPS neighborhood school. They hired a principal, Jorge Macias. The sometime in June we find out he had been fired In addition, AUSL took over and the name changed to Eric Solorio. According to the Board of Ed reports they did additional "community outreach" and decided to change the name. As a community member and speaking to many teachers who teach at local schools in the area, no one was asked about the name change. Zaragoza was decided on by the students of Irene C. Hernandez. The community is also not informed on what AUSL is and what there mission is. We feel there is a lot that is being left out."
