As TMZ first reported, a group of Michael Jackson fans had petitioned to get the sign uncovered. The sign had been in place from 1989 until 2003, when it was covered up due to the child molestation charges against Jackson.

The sign was unveiled yesterday, where a member of the Los Angeles Board of Education said, "It's important for the district to value the artistic impact and humanitarian contribution that will be the lasting legacy of Michael Jackson."

Bravo! This has been long overdue. Thank you to the diligent fans who made this happen. Michael was proven innocent in a court of law and we should remember him for his legacy, not baseless accusations.

Well, I guess it´s good. But I don´t think the school deserves Michael´s name.
They should never have accepted his money, then covering his name. AT LEAST they should have removed the boards when Michael was found NOT GUILTY on all counts. They should have done it then, while Michael was still alive.

get real    

A jury has never been wrong? Obviously, this is a school who hasn't read the transcripts from his trials, depositions, etc of the several accusers who came forward. We are supposed to believe all those boys were lying about sexual abuse for potential profit? One expert on sexual abuse in the last trial testified that there were no precedents of that ever being known to happen.

I agree. They should've done it while he was still alive. It broke his heart when they covered it up.
