LISTEN: ELIZABETH SCHULTZ gives an update on J.E.B Stuart High School name change

INTERVIEW — ELIZABETH SCHULTZ – Fairfax County School Board member

TOPIC: The Fairfax County school board is scheduled to pick a new name for J.E.B. Stuart High on Thursday.

• For nearly 60 years, Northern Virginia students have attended J.E.B. Stuart High School, named after a Confederate general who died in battle. Now, after a contentious dispute, the Fairfax County School Board is expected to vote to change the school’s name.

• The debate has dragged on for two years and has included raucous community forums and testy board meetings.

• The community surrounding the Falls Church, Va., school was at one point asked to vote on possible new names, only to find out later the public vote was nonbinding and the Fairfax County School Board has the final say.
