Fla. Senators Oppose Trump Trial; Changing Duval School Names; What’s Good Wednesday

Feb 10, 2021

As the second impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump entered its second day Tuesday, Florida’s congressional delegation stands against it. 

Daniel Cronrath, a Professor of Political Science at FSCJ, joined us to explain why, and tell us what to expect as the trial moves forward. 

Changing Duval School Names

The names of nine Duval County Public Schools campuses are on track to undergo review starting next month.  Stakeholders see the schools’ controversial namesake historical figures as a growing problem. Six of the schools under consideration for renaming honor Confederate Civil War leaders and the other three schools are named after leaders who historians say perpetrated violence against Native Americans.

Two of the schools are Jean Ribault High School and Jean Ribault Middle School. Yves de Montcheuila direct descendant of Jean Ribault, spoke with us about the renamings.
