Fans Want Michael Jackson's Name Restored in His School


Michael Jackson


The Michael Jackson Auditorium was opened in 1989 but the King of Pop's name was covered with plywood upon his child molestation case.

A group of Michael Jackson fans is meeting with Los Angeles councilors to discuss the future of a building named in the singer's honor. Officials at Gardner Elementary School, where Jackson attended classes in 1970, opened the Michael Jackson Auditorium in 1989 in tribute to their most famous pupil.

But they decided to cover up Jackson's name with plywood in 2003 after the "Thriller" hitmaker was accused of child molestation. Now Jackson's fans have launched a campaign to have his name reinstated on the building, claiming the late star shouldn't be punished as he was cleared of any wrongdoing at his 2005 trial.

The group has collected more than 2,000 signatures and will meet with the Board of Education to plead their case next week, reports TMZ.com.
