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.Her attire wouldn't pass my school's dress code.
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.
When I was in high school, we all went to thie same portrait studio, put on similar-looking coats and ties (for boys) and gowns (for girls), and those were our yearbook pictures. But that was then, this is now.
Then, now, what about the future? Perhaps in the future she'll be thankful that her skank-pic wasn't saved for posterity in the yearbook.
