Oklahoma City to rename schools named after Confederate generals


Officials in Oklahoma’s largest city voted unanimously Monday to rename three elementary schools named after Confederate generals, becoming the latest district to do so.

The Oklahoma City Public Schools School Board voted 7-0 to change the names of the Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Isaac Stand Watie schools.

“As the district begins the input process to determine the names these facilities will bear moving forward, I hope to use it as a teachable moment for our students and to establish a positive image and a sense of pride for these school communities to carry them into the future,” Superintendent Aurora Lora said in a statement to FOX 25 News.
