With the Oregon Board of Education decision late last month, 14 public schools, including our neighboring Reedsport Community Charter School, will need to change their Native American-themed mascots by 2017.

The board is upholding the original law passed in 2012 by rejecting an amendment to that law that would’ve allowed schools to keep their mascots with permission from local tribes. Whether the state board can summarily negate the legislature’s amendment remains to be seen. But for now, schools who cleave unto their Native American icons will lose state funding.
