School officials at Wasatch High School have pulled off perhaps the greatest cover-up since Watergate by using Photoshop to cover up some plunging necklines among some of its female students in the school yearbook.
This was wrong for several reasons. The school not only discriminated against females, but it also altered their photos without their permission. It made their photos look odd, as they were definitely not of the current style.
And the school’s actions were uneven, as some girls’ photos were changed while others weren’t, even though their outfits were just as revealing.
This is just another example of deplorable censorship in our schools today, where student have little if any rights.
