    Wow, I think what's most shocking to me is the quick accurate response. Not what we're used to from school administrations.

    Now, should the guy be fired? Nope, but he should write an essay to be published in the school paper explaining why what he did was wrong. Bonus points for explaining what wrong mental thought process he used to convince himself that it was okay.

    I never said apology. don't want that, but a real essay explaining why he was wrong. and the Principal should receive and grade it before publishing.

    Possibly pay for reprinting the yearbooks just so there is an actual punishment. As it is he's getting paid and not working, sounds like an anti punishment.

    Sounds like an accommodation to the union.
    If diversity were such a strength, why do blacks preach “solidarity”?

    I'm not sure that, on this, I'm entirely against the school. They should not have altered the pics.
    But I am not sure they should have allowed them to be taken, either.

    A yearbook is an inappropriate place to have political material. It's about school and school memories.
    If I recall correctly, MY schools DID review pics that were to go in and re-took pics or otherwise blocked the publishing
    of pics that said certain things. (My senior yearbook DID however miss ME subtly flipping the bird in a group pic).

    Vulgar material - or suggestive T-shirt slogans (two ACTUAL shirts from my school days - a pizza place that prominently said "The best piece" right on the front, and a hot dog place that boasted on its shirts "the best meat between the buns") were not allowed. But that went for gestures (ha!) and even slogans on shirts. (Gang signs weren't a "thing" then).
