Name Change For Arlington School Considered Tonight

(Arlington)- The fate of one high school’s name lies in the hands of the Arlington School Board tonight. Leaders are expected to choose a replacement for the name of Washington-Lee High School, which is named after George Washington and Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A committee suggested last month that the school be named Washington-Loving after a couple that helped strike down a ban on interracial marriage in Caroline County. The school board has heard arguments from both supporters and opponents of removing Lee’s name from the title.
