Madison School Board Drops Vang Pao Elementary’s Name

Originally named for Hmong Gen. Vang Pao, the board reconsidered the name because of Pao’s arrest on charges that he was part of an effort to overthrow the Laotian government.
School Board President Arlene Silviera said before the meeting that she doesn’t think the board will make any final decision on a name on Monday night, but would vote on whether to change the current name and how they might select a new one, WISC-TV reported.
