The saga of renaming JEB Stuart High School continues. At its meeting on October 26, the Fairfax County School Board changed the name of the school to Justice High School, a move that will likely cost county taxpayers a million dollars.
See a video of the School Board’s October 26 meeting below:
JEB Stuart High School is comprised of 75% minority students from 80 different countries and praised for its diversity and harmony. It has existed for 60 years with diverse minorities getting along in a cosmopolitan environment, and praised for its diversity and harmony, until two years ago when a few students and teachers started complaining.
In 2016 the school was polled, and 90% were found to either like the name JEB Stuart or found no compelling need to change the name. Even many African Americans like the name JEB Stuart.
After two years and wasting tens of thousands of dollars on a million dollar unneeded name change, the School Board voted 7 to 4 to rename JEB Stuart to “Justice High School.” The seven Democrats were: Sandy Evans, Pat Hynes, Ryan McElveen, Ilryong Moon, Karen Gamarra, Jane Strauss, and Dahlia Palchik. Democrat Karen Sanders said she had to leave and catch a plane and could not make the final vote.
The idea of naming the school after the concept of societal “Justice” was never included in the list of possible names considered by the community when it voted on September 16. However, the title “Justice” was included in the September 16 community vote as a part of the proposed name of “Justice Thurgood Marshall,” which lost to “Stuart High School” in total first place votes by a 2 to 1 margin. It should also be mentioned that it was the School Board itself that insisted “Stuart High School” be included in the September 16 community vote in order to minimize costs and help heal divisions.
The School Board also rejected a motion to name the school after Latino War Hero Colonel Mendez, as well as a motion to ensure name change proponents provide “substantial” private funding before the name change occurs. Therefore, the taxpayer will carry the major brunt of the nearly one million dollar cost of the name change, which does not include $200,000 in new spirit wear born by students, many of whom are poor.
One down and 30 more politically incorrect school names to go in Fairfax County at a cost of up to 20 million dollars, courtesy of Democrats who want to culturally cleanse America of history (sweeping out the good with the bad). Next up, Robert E. Lee, Jefferson, Madison, Mount Vernon, and Fairfax High Schools. And all it requires is a few vocal students working with special interest groups to complain about a perceived offense and the School Board will break every rule in the books to help ensure “Justice.”

School Board Member Who Initiated Renaming to be Recalled to Ensure Justice
Not announced at the School Board meeting is that a movement has been started to recall Sandy Evans, the School Board leader who pushed the name change and worked relentlessly with special interest groups to make it into Justice High School.
Movement leaders are looking for people to help obtain petition signatures for the recall.
New School Construction to be Voted on November Election Day Ballot
Unfortunately, Democrat School Board members pushing the costly and divisive name changes are not on this coming November 7 Election Day ballot. However, there are many other Democrats on the November 7 ballot who want to culturally cleanse society of any unkind American history.
There is also a school bond referendum on the ballot this November 7. Included in school bond referendum is the construction of a new school that can be named anything they want at no additional cost.
