Yearbook Photo

YI! High School Senior (and Mom) has her photo removed from the year book:  

Caitlin Tiller is a senior at Wheatmore High School in North Carolina. Not only is she about to graduate, but she is also the mom of a one-year-old little boy. But her photo won't be appearing in her senior yearbook. The photo, taken with her son in her arms, was removed from the yearbook by administrators before going to print. Apparently, school officials thought the photo would somehow promote teen pregnancy.

Here's the kicker: She was fulfilling a school-mandated request to make yearbook pics more personal. Students were asked to bring something to pose with that showcases "an achievement" or "best represents them." Caitlin obviously chose her son. (Cosmo)

Slacker had his beloved guitar in his senior photo; some of his buddies had their car, baseball bat… the usual.  Steve’s high school never made them pose with anything, but it would have been a graphics bong…  They understand that if the school printed the picture, the school would put the stamp of approval on it. She did fill the requirement, so maybe the school shouldn’t place the greatest achievement on senior pictures.

What do you think?

I never had this “greatest achievement” placed on our senior pictures…Maybe just a quote at the bottom of a generic quote or future plans or even just the clubs they participated in with the school is enough…The school probably should of told the young lady sooner, that way she still could have been photographed minus her son.  

Ciao!
Intern Lauren
