In the wake of Charlottesville, a call to change the name of Arlington's Washington-Lee High


August 22, 2017

Community members in Arlington, Va., are pressing the school board to change the name of Washington-Lee High, a campaign that comes in response to last weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Va., where a white supremacist rally around a statue of Robert E. Lee descended into violence.

While the school’s name has come under occasional scrutiny, school board members this time indicated they are weighing establishing better criteria for how schools are named, potentially opening the door to renaming the high school.
