There should be no schools, parks, ANYTHING named after Confederates. This is a disgraceful part of America's past that should not be celebrated.

I'm signing because as an alumna of both Robert E. Lee High School and the University of Virginia, the renaming of these schools is long overdue. With confederate statues being removed throughout the state and in the wake of the violence that occurred this weekend at my beloved university, Fairfax County, by allowing these names to remain, is passively encouraging white nationalist hate groups such as the ones that marched through the grounds of UVa and the streets of Charlottesville. Fairfax County needs to be a progressive leader and make the changes that will promote inclusivity and diversity.

It's disrespectful to students, especially African American students, to have them attend a school named in honor of a leader who fought for a cause that would have kept their ancestors in human bondage.

I'm a graduate from c/o '96. In light of Charlottesville, I wanted to see whether there were existing efforts underway to change the name. What is the status of this petition and next steps?

I graduated Lee HS in 2000. And I think this name is despicable.

I'm signing because it is absurd that we continue to have these symbols around us and held up for children to see and be surrounded by daily.

Thanks for adding your voice.
