Since 1864, a small school district in San Rafael has been called the Dixie School district. Now, residents are in a heated debate regarding whether or not the "Dixie" name, which some say hearkens back to the Confederate South, is appropriate and should be changed. Those supporting a name change claim that "Dixie" is unwelcoming and reflects poorly on the community, whereas those who wish to keep the name say it is associated with a good school district and shouldn't be altered.
