Utah School “Photoshops” Yearbook Photos To Show Less Skin
Female students at Wasatch High School in Utah were surprised to find their yearbook photos were altered without them knowing about it.
Wasatch County Superintendent Terry Shoemaker said there was a sign warning students that pictures might be edited and the students should have known the dress code.
He did apologize for the randomness of the rule: “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.”
