Changing the name would be like cutting off a part of our lives. How many of the multitude of us who attended that wonderful school and had our lives shaped by the great teachers and fellow students ever approved of slavery????? Absolutely NONE. We cannot change history. PLEASE!!! Don't take that part of our lives away from us. To be considerate of the current students who are offended (and we certainly understand their position), maybe the school could be named: ROBERT E LEE -- MARTIN LUTHER KING HIGH SCHOOL to show the progress that we the people and our nation made.
