Separate school boards in Texas are moving to change the names of high schools named after Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
On Monday night, members of the North East Independent School District board in San Antonio voted to officially change the name of its Robert E. Lee High School to Legacy of Educational Excellence (L.E.E.) High School.
According to KSAT-TV, the board voted to change the school's name in August and accepted submissions for a new name. But the overwhelming majority of people who suggested names apparently didn't take it seriously because only 22 percent of the nearly 2,500 suggestions met the board's criteria.
Some of the submitted names included Adolf Hitler High School and Gregg Popovich High School, according to KSAT.
The school has been named for Lee since it was built in 1958. The board previously considered changing its name during the 2015-2016 school year but it didn't pass the vote.
Meanwhile, in Tyler, Texas — about 300 miles northeast of San Antonio — another school board is seriously considering changing the name of its own Robert E. Lee High School.
