AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Independent School District leaders are split on whether Lanier High School in North Austin needs a new name.
The district is renaming schools whose titles have ties to the confederacy. Lanier is named after a poet who fought for the confederacy
During a meeting Tuesday night, some board members argued the process is ignoring what students and teachers want.
"The move reveals an ignorance of what's happening on the ground in the communities surrounding those campuses ," said Ann Teich.
The board did not come to a decision and they will discuss what to do again next week.
