Johnnie Cochran Middle School: "If you don't stay in school, you're uncool"

Los Angeles has renamed the public school, formerly Mt. Vernon Middle School, to Johnnie Cochran Middle School, in honor of the late criminal defense attorney who attended the school as a boy.  The school's subtitle isn't really "If you don't stay in school, you're uncool," but teachers should feel free to throw around catchy phrases as they see fit.  After all, Johnnie loved those catchy phrases, and they seemed to work for him too.
