Nathan B. Forrest High — the Jacksonville school named for the Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader — has a new name.
The Duval County School Board voted to rename school #241 on Tuesday. Starting in the fall it will be Westside Senior High.
From the moment it was named in 1959, there’s been controversy over Forrest High, home of the Rebels.
In 2008 the school board elected not to rename the majority African-American school. The votes fell along color lines.
