The principal of a high school in Texas (where else?) is censoring the school’s yearbook.
Senior Megan Estes, editor in chief of The Elk, said the point of the article, featuring two seniors who also are teen mothers, was to show fellow students how the girls are coping with motherhood and how their lives have changed. Estes said the principal told her he felt the article “glamorized” the teen mothers’ mistakes.
Principal Paul Cash said the topic of the article conflicts with the school’s abstinence-based curriculum. He also said he does not think the community would want that topic covered in the yearbook.
I think reality conflicts with the school’s abstinence-based curriculum. I wonder if he’s got an answer for that?
Probably something like “close your eyes real hard.”
