Wilson High School to discuss banning Redskins clothing

The debate over the Washington Redskins name has left the football field and entered the classroom.

The principal at Wilson High School in D.C. said Thursday that he’d discuss with his students the idea of banning students from wearing Redskins clothing.

“I do plan on having a discussion with my student council officers and representative to get their take on this idea,” said Wilson High School principal Pete Cahall.

He said a student approached him about a week ago saying Redskins clothing should be banned because some Native Americans find it offensive.

Earlier this week, Redskins owner Dan Snyder penned a letter to season ticket holders defending the Redskins name, calling it a badge of honor.
