There is an entire yearbook that has photos of various sorts of the students. If he can convince the yearbook editor and the yearbook school officials to include that ridiculous photo in the other sections, that's on them.

There is one section that is reserved for photos of the seniors. It's not for the seniors' cats, nor is to to be abused by attention whores as this young idiot is an example of.

Well during my daughter's senior and graduating year, she had a yearbook pic taken then another high profile graduation picture complete with graduation hat and diploma. So, I don't see why a yearbook picture can't include a little fun...perhaps a background screen where the students can project their uniqueness or portray what they are about.

There is a time and a place for fun. The REST of the yearbook handles the fun. There is more of it than there are photos of seniors.

This isn't hard to grasp.

What is hard to grasp for me is that what the school authorities want and the senior students who are heading into university want is very little personal freedom of expression, and besides it appears a compromise was reached by both parties, so neither were so steadfast or unmoveable.

The 'compromise' is that the self absorbed clown does not get the photo placed in the senior photo section. The photo will be included in another section of the book.

That's too bad in a way because the photos in the other sections in a yearbook are traditionally taken by fellow students, not by an outside professional except for the head shot photos of the students. It's supposed to be a STUDENT yearbook.

In the linked article where the narcissist is preemptorally seeking supporters, did you notice he refers to the phtographer as "my" photographer. Who does that?

MY photographer??

Not "the" photographer.

This poor child sees the entire world through HIS narcissistic glasses.

Probably not even Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian refers to a photographer as "my" photographer. Maybe Kanye does, but then he is a total jerkwad.

Perhaps you are right BAG, but the desire to have a little personal freedom of expression is what I am on about and I'm sure he is not the only student who desires it.

update:

Quote:Laser-cat teen gets photo in yearbook with principal..

His principal, Diane Wilkinson, would also appear in the photo with their animals, and the photo will appear on the principal's page in the yearbook, the Daily Gazette said.

"The school and I have worked out a compromise we're all happy with. It'll be in there, just not in the senior section," Rodriguez wrote on his petition page website.

Both animals are rescue pets. The principal's dog's name is Vivian, the photographer, Vincent Giordano, said, and the goal is to raise awareness of rescue animals through the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Ha! Sometimes a little protest works wonders. thumbsup.gif Compromise is always a good way to go, but I am still of the mind that a senior's yearbook picture should be open to freedom of expression and graduation pictures should be offered separately because not all seniors will be passing.

And as for the law...

"Adam Goldstein, attorney advocate for the Student Press Law Center, said Spies’ allegations against the school’s administration may be valid.

According to Colorado Revised Statutes Section 22-1-120, “students of the public schools shall have the right to exercise freedom of speech and of the press” and that “no expression contained in a student publication, whether or not such publication is school-sponsored, shall be subject to prior restraint.”

Goldstein said, “Hopefully, it would come as no surprise that dress codes don’t trump state law.”

However, school administration can overrule the law under certain requirements, including obscenity.

Obscenity is defined as material that is offensive to the community and appeals to “morbid or shameful” interests, without social, literary or artistic value, Goldstein said."
