State Board of Education Trying to Change School Mascots

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The State Board of Education is making another attempt at encouraging Washington schools to replace their Native American mascots.

The state board passed a resolution  urging districts to stop using Native American mascots, nicknames and logos, but a board spokesman says the board does not have the authority to mandate this change. 

 

On the other hand, Oregon schools have five years to comply.
