Florida school censoring yearbooks

They are holding up distribution of the school yearbook until they an cover up all the photos of kids holding rainbow flags and anything documenting the student protest over the Don't say gay law.

Ron, what happened to FREE SPEECH????

Covering up protests sounds mighty Communist to me.

More like toeing the party line, that's what authoritarian governments require.

this is not a gov't action - it's a school acting on its own

It's self-censorship.

A public school reacting to government policy is, for all intent and purposes, a government action. Absent the state government's avowed policy, this wouldn't probably have happened - not unlike some Florida universities previously prohibiting faculty from making public comment about public policy.

We have a variety of 3M Sticky Notes we won’t be using we can contribute. They are in all colors of the rainbow.

AT LAST! Now those Oriental Trading Company 144 count rainbow stickers can really be useful. [www.orientaltrading.com]

The Seminole County School Board reversed the district's decision, voting 5-0 not to obscure the photos and captions of a walkout protest featured in Lyman High School’s yearbook.

Instead, a sticker will be placed on the page that explains the protest was student-led and not sponsored by the school.

back in the late 70's and early 80's we had the same thing. Adults supervised and removed certain photos they felt inappropriate. Pics of middle school students kissing, stuff like that

Hey, at least the FL governor is not a Democrat- Democrats hate freedom and want to tell you what to do. Republicans like Desantis value freedom and personal choice.

Ignore the facts and just believe the BS described above without question, and you’ll be happy.

Oh, I hear you. I'm conservative, but not really a Republican, because, well, I don't hate everyone except myself.
