    In a Colorado high school a student gave them the high school pic that she wanted to used in the year book. The year book staff or board first said NO then later said YES. Then the schools Principle got in to it and the year book staff or board said no again. They said it was not appropreate(sp) and to revealing for their year book. They did say later if she would wish to pay $300.00 she could have it put in the year book as an add. ??????? In the year book they showed a male kid that looked like he was in a Calvin Klin add. He didn't have a shirt on and his pants were lower then they should be. She the girl in question wasn't that bad. Everything that needed to be covered was covered. I would say we all have seen alot worst in malls and other places.

    What abunch of SNOB's

    The mall and other places are not the HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK. If they let it in for $300 whoever is in charge should be let go!! Sometimes common sense needs to take over.

    Depending on her lifestyle, she may, or may not, regret choosing this picture later in life. Some people, and obviously the people involved in the year book process, seem to have this view, that dressing in this manner could lead one to believe the young lady is a slut.

    Some colleges and employers, when back checking applicants, might see this picture and begin to wonder if this young lady conveys the image that their school or company wants to be associated with. A yearbook picture is somewhat akin to a tattoo in that once you do it, there is no easy way to remove it. In fact, the yearbook picture is even more permanent since some people are now paying big money to removes Tats they received in their younger wilder days.

    In a published report, it was said that the Principal was not the one who rejected this but the yearbook staff of five student editors were the ones who rejected the picture. The parents were filing a lawsuit against a number of parties involved. I am wondering if this girl (and/or her parents?) is trying to provoke an argument to gain publicity for some future plan for her life. When I see the number of "celebrities" that seem to relish being on the tabloid front cover with their own scandal of the week, I wonder what the yearbook entry from her has for this girl's future hopes and plans.

    I would think a Playboy shoot offer is in her near future. That is I believe a quick $100,000, now that she is famous. Then a possible porn career. The parents should be beaten and shot. The school should sue the parents. What they wear outside school is their business. I would bet that the school would not allow her to wear those cloths to school. If so, why allow it in the yearbook. They are still representing there school, with there name on the yearbook. $300 for an ad. For what a hooker! I find that very hard to beleive a Principal would say. Then they wonder why some psychotic of this created society takes their poor innocent little girl and they find her in a plasitc bag back in the woods. The parents are obviously not looking out in this girls best interests. Parents need to be parents, and stand up to these kids, no matter what the other kids are wearing, or have for that matter.

    If that is the picture in question, she should be a shoe in for being voted:

    "Most likely", . . . you can figure out the rest.

    Parents charged with WHAT crime????? You see more than that at any beach or swimming pool. The girl is covered and only her belly and legs are showing, My god, now we have the fashion police trying to tell someone how to dress. If tht is the picture SHE wanted in her yearbook, she should be allowed to have it.

    She is the one that would have to suffer any consequences in the future for HER choice. The boy that looked like a Calvin Klien Add wasnt prevented from putting his picture in the yearbook, sounds like pure DISCRIMINATION to me

    Oscar that is the picture. If that were your daughter, would you allow it to be used for her highschool yearbook?

    You gotta give it to the girl, she just got a million bucks worth of publicity and will probably get a movie or book deal. No telling how much money she will make off this and will no doubt laugh all the way to the bank.

    Oscar Ray.......If you would read the site I posted you would have noticed that the picture of the boy was rejected two years ago.

    Where do we draw the line? Do we allow 5 yr old girls to go topless at beauty pageants? 10, 12, 13 year olds? Some where we still need some morals don't we?

    Personally i didn't think it was all that bad. I've seen young girls wearing less than that around here. I wouldn't let my kids wear it to school though. Of course i have two boys and that just wouldn't look right. :)

    I am not saying I agree with her choice, and if it were MY daughter, no way would she be allowed to put that in the yearbook, but apparently her parents were OK with it.

    She is 17, not 5 or 10, 11, 12 or 13 so she should get some choices in life. If she turned 18 the day after the picture was submitted, does that automatically make her smarter or more mature, I dont think so.

    I am bothered by the fact that someone else has the right to tell her she cant submit it, but if she wants to pay $300 it would be OK to put it in as an add HUH?????? an add for WHAT???????

    We are not the moral police, and like I said, you see alot more skin at the beach on 17 year olds than what she was showing there. How about the tattoo's on her leg, are they unacceptable to the moral police????? Where does it end???

    As it turns out, the young lady is 18 years old, an adult, not a child. MOOT POINT, she is old enough to make those decisions herself. I hope she files a law suit against the school.

    Here is the article from MSN

    18-year-old Sydney Spies wants a future in modeling, and she figured she would make that clear with her senior picture in her high school yearbook.

    But the Durango, Colo., prospective graduate found herself embroiled in controversy when her school’s yearbook editors put the kibosh on running a photo of Sydney posing provocatively in a black shawl and short yellow skirt that exposed plenty of skin.
    Video: Yearbook photo too racy? Student fights back (on this page)
    Sydney and her mother Miki Spies are butting heads with the yearbook staff and school administration over a case they believe smacks of censorship, and they appeared live on TODAY Monday to make their case that Sydney should be able to represent herself the way she wants in the annals of her school’s history.

    "I honestly think (the picture) describes who I am," Sydney told Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview. "I'm an outgoing person and I really do think it’s artistic."

    Both mom and daughter say they’re particularly irked by the school’s mixed message when it comes to students showing off their interests in their senior pictures — and that there didn’t seem to be a problem with Sydney’s photo appearing in the yearbook until last week.

    Sydney says she submitted the photo to the yearbook staff, and they approved it shortly before Christmas. But after the school’s Christmas break, staff told her the photo was unacceptable. They asked her to submit a second photo, and Sydney agreed; but staff found the image of her wearing a form-fitting, black mesh strapless dress no less racy.

    She believes the school brass had a hand in the reversal: "I think it was the administration," she told Lauer. "They had a meeting with the principal and the next day their whole decision changed and completely against me."


















    .
    But school yearbook staff say a precedent was set two years ago when the yearbook nixed a photo of a shirtless male student. And editor Brian Jamirillo said the award-winning yearbook has a standard to uphold.

    "We didn’t want this picture to make our publication seem unprofessional and inappropriate," he told NBC News' Tamron Hall.

    Mom Miki has stood by her daughter, even joining her in waving placards in protest outside the school. But she told Lauer that even she had initial misgivings.

    "I asked her not to do it," she said. "I said, 'Sydney, really, is this the one you want?'"

    But Miki Spies told Hall she now views the photograph through her daughter’s eyes

    Rick,

    Just because you think it is inapproriate, does not make it so. As I said before, you see more skin on a beach or at a pool. She has a right to dress the way she wants whether or not anyone else agrees with it. She is NOT naked, there is nothing showing that could be charged as indecent in a court of law.

    We will just have to agree to disagree on this one. Again, I am not saying I agree with her choice, just the right for her to make that choice. She has done nothing illegal. If the yearbook folks didnt set firm guidelines as to what was acceptable or not acceptable, then they do not have a leg to stand on.
    Where will it end??? Should they be allowed to stop a photo of someone wearing a religious symbol because they find it inapproriate??

    I would have to think most of us as parents may have some difficulty with our daughter in this case, I realize some may not. However, many comments aren't too valid in the arguement. What people wear outside of school,in the pool or on the beach is and cannot be a relative comparison to what is acceptable 'clothing' in schools. First of all most schools have some statements regarding student dress in their handbook. I'm not talking uniforms here but certainly the boundaries of acceptable dress. And by the way, schools are not a democracy when it comes to these types of decisions, directions are set,usually confirmed by the Board and shared or developed with parents.
    Schools can and do set acceptable standards around dress,behaviour and other expectations and trying to compare to what exists on the beach is a useless arguement in this case.We're not on the beach..it's school!
    If she's 18 then it is her legal responsibility to sue not her parents at least in our jurisdiction.
    Over the years I've had to send kids home because of inappropriate dress..either that or change at school before going to class.And by the way it's not only about lack of clothes but the messages on them. Some are rude with everything from unacceptable language to racists comments.
    Wear them on your own time if you or your parents don't care but unfortunately(for them)not in school.
    Comments from this old Principal!
