The yearbook said it was fine to include the pic as a "senior ad" in the book, it just would not appear in the classier section with all the senior pictures.A Colorado teenager whose yearbook picture was rejected for being too revealing is vowing to fight the ban with her high school’s administration, but the editors of the yearbook insist it was their decision alone on the photo.
The five student editors of the Durango High School yearbook in Durango, Col., told the Durango Herald they were the ones who made the call not to publish a picture of senior Sydney Spies posing in a short yellow skirt midriff and shoulder-exposing black shawl as her senior portrait.
“We are an award-winning yearbook. We don’t want to diminish the quality with something that can be seen as unprofessional,” student Brian Jaramillo told the paper on Thursday...
The mom is apparently throwing a hissy fit and they're now talking to lawyers about whether they have a case to sue the school, etc.
.... I'm just not sure why they want to spend all this money so that their daughter can publicly look like a tramp. (She honestly looks like the opening pic in a Playboy sequence, and next pic she will be stripping off her top... tastefully, of course!)
Really, is this the kind of thing they want haunting her when she goes to look for a high-end professional job in a few years? it seems a silly matter to waste so much time and money on, considering she can still get the picture into the yearbook in a different and more appropriate section of the book.
