School Named for Ku Klux Klan Leader Renamed

Less controversial, but more boring


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville high school named after a former Confederate general and the co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan has a new name.

The Duval County School Board voted Tuesday night to change Nathan B. Forrest High to Westside High.

The school has been known as Nathan B. Forrest since 1959. It now carries the name of the neighborhood it's located in.
