Yearbook editing with scissors in Georgia

Written by Elizabeth Braden, CJE

Some parents and students at Chattooga High School in Georgia were unhappy with the 2009 yearbook they received recently. Four pages of the yearbook were cut out when the principal determined some of the photos were inappropriate.

And when we say “cut out,” we mean they were literally cut out of the book.

Take a look at the entire story, as well as the reaction from some of those involved.

What is your opinion on this? Let us know what you think.
