School Loses Name of KKK Founder
A Jacksonville, Fla., high school named in 1959 after a former Confederate general and the co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan has a new name, ending a decades-long debate over the issue.
The Duval County school board voted unanimously last week to change Nathan B. Forrest High to Westside High, to reflect the neighborhood.
A school advisory council had asked the board to change the name in 2007, but then-board members voted 5-2 against the change.
