The Amarillo Independent School District voted unanimously last night to change the name of Robert E. Lee Elementary to Park Hills Elementary. In the words of AISD Board President, Robin Malone:
We understand that it’s part of our history, but I strongly agree that it does not need to be a part of our future. The name of this school is righting a wrong. It’s about facing implicit biases. We are voting on a name change, but it’s so much deeper than that.”
