“ High School Is Accused Of Censorship As Officials Rip Out Yearbook Pages On The News “

‘ The theme of Bigelow High School's 2020-21 yearbook was The Roaring 20s. But it appears officials at the Arkansas school wanted the student record of the events of the tumultuous year to be a little less of a roar and more of a meow.

Before delivering the keepsakes to students earlier this month, school administrators ripped out a two-page spread depicting a timeline of events from the academic year. Among the high/lowlights included were the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, former President Donald Trump's claims of a rigged election, the Jan. 6 insurrection, and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is unclear who was behind the decision to excise the pages from the student-designed yearbook, but East End School District Superintendent Heidi Wilson justified the move by citing "community backlash." ‘

Seems Superintendent Wilson is a MAGAt who can’t handle the truth. I’m sure the small town school board will back her to the hilt.

Yeah, those historical notes were just important facts about the year that evidently passed through the usual editorial process. If some people objected to their inclusion then they were free to rip those pages out of their own yearbooks rather than dictate to everyone else that the yearbooks reflect their opinions alone.

I hope many of the students ask for refunds.

Perhaps the kids could persuade the local ACLU to bring a private prosecution against Ma Wilson for "Vandalism of School Property".
