The Washington-Lee High School bleachers.

The Washington-Lee High School bleachers.

It’s been nearly a year since a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville ignited nationwide debate about Confederate names and likenesses in our communities.

In Arlington, the debate over renaming Washington-Lee High School has divided the town — with school board members voting to change the name and students filing a suit against them.

So, what’s really in a name? And is it time for schools to distance themselves from a legacy of honoring Confederate leaders?
