Long Beach Unified School Board Approves Creation of Committee to Rename Schools

Following last month’s Charleston, South Carolina church shooting, and the ensuing criticism for having schools names after Confederate heroes such as Robert E. Lee, the Long Beach Unified School Board approved the creation of a committee tasked with naming schools. The committee will vet potential names for new schools, review names of existing schools, and establish a process for renaming schools. Long Beach is an ethnically diverse community and the school board members hope new school names will honor a more diverse set of role models.
