Last night, the Arlington County Public School Board voted 5-0 to change the name of Washington-Lee High School to Washington-Liberty High School. Another motion, to change the name to Washington-Loving High School, failed on a 2-3 vote. See below for video of some of the discussio and the vote. As Board Chair Reid Goldstein put it, “the unifying theme here is liberty…I want to assure people we have not been taking this lightly…this name change will not change your alma matter, it’s not going to change your diploma…it’s not going to change your education…and it’s not going to change the great high school experience that you had…it’s not going to erase history.”
