**********

A Virginia school district board unanimously voted on Tuesday to remove the names of Thomas Jefferson and George Mason from two of its schools,” according to The College Fix.

In a statement, the Falls Church City Public Schools said the decision came about after a “six-month-long process” including public hearings, “hundreds of submitted written public comments” and a community survey.

“School Board Chair Greg Anderson said the board “took seriously the viewpoints and concerns raised by many students, parents, staff, and community members,” and it now will “begin selecting names that reflect the diversity of opinions in our community.”

“Anderson added: “Our schools must be places where all students, staff, and community members feel safe, supported, and inspired.”

According to WTOP, the board’s 7-0 vote came despite an average of 56 percent of the school community opposing the name changes.”
