TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A public school district in Oklahoma has removed a monument at an elementary school that was dedicated to Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Tulsa Public Schools says the nearly century-old monument was removed on Tuesday.

The monument’s removal comes less than week after the district’s board rescinded the official name of the school, which was Robert E. Lee Elementary School. The school board has yet to officially rename the school.
