We want the Superintendent and the School Board to take action to remove Robert Lee's name and likeness from our schools. The time has come to bury symbols and imagery of the Confederacy in the past.
Why is this important?
Children should not have to attend schools named after traitors who fought to keep others in bondage. They are not heroes! Naming schools after Confederate Generals contributes to the myth of the noble Confederacy and works to harm children by masking the reality of the Civil War - which was to preserve slavery and white supremacy.
