Picture Day is one of the biggest events of your high school career, right behind the SATs, graduation, and prom night. Imagine getting all dolled up for your yearbook photo, only to get a copy and find that someone has Photoshopped a new outfit onto your body.
Female students at Wasatch High School in Utah were not happy when they noticed that sleeves and higher collars were added to cover their skin in their yearbook. "I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who," said a sophomore who noticed that not all of the photos had been altered. "There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didn’t."
The Wasatch County Superintendent said that the students knew the dress code and were warned that photos may be altered if they were not in compliance. "We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we’re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things," he added.
At least now they have an interesting story to tell their kids someday.
