Virginia school board decision to reinstate Confederate names.

A Virginia school board has voted to revert two schools back to their Confederate names, Stonewall Jackson High and Ashby-Lee Elementary. This decision followed a heated debate that divided the town of Quicksburg, with community members arguing that the 2020 name change was unpopular. The move marks the first such reversal in the US. Critics of the renaming effort have called it hasty and undemocratic, while supporters claim it is essential to honor the community’s heritage. The decision has sparked controversy and drawn attention across the state, with conflicting opinions on the historical significance of the Confederate names.
