ALBANY - First the statue of Gen. Philip Schuyler in Albany was ordered to be taken down. Now the Schuyler name will be taken from a school.

The Philip J. Schuyler Achievement Academy announced a new committee Friday to develop a policy on changing the name of the school.


School officials say they need to make a change as social unrest grows.

The committee will meet on June 29. Reach out by next Wednesday if you want to be on it.
