Despite public opposition, the Falls Church school board voted to change the names of two public schools named after one of the first presidents and another Founding Father because both men owned slaves. This is what the Democrats do — ignore constituents and advance their own agenda.
The Falls Church school board conducted a survey to vet the community’s interest in changing the schools’ names. Only 26 percent of the nearly 3,500 parents, students, and staff members surveyed supported renaming the George Mason school, and only 23 percent supported renaming the Thomas Jefferson school. By contrast, 56 percent opposed renaming both schools.
