Wisconsin school mascots

The Wisconsin Indian Education Association asks schools to change their "Indian" team names and logos, "out of respect for Wisconsin Native nations."


As Wisconsin lawmakers debate the rules for challenging race-based school mascots, we learn they've raised divergent opinions for decades.

An Assembly committee has advanced a bill, requiring people who want to change a school nickname to gather signatures and prove discriminatory effects.

Republican legislators are proposing four requirements for changing a school mascot in Wisconsin. Until now, just one person had to object, on the basis of race.
