Skip to comments.Colorado Student Banned from Yearbook Over Racy Photo
Posted on 01/07/2012 4:12:02 PM PST by Lmo56
A Colorado teenager whose yearbook picture was rejected for being too revealing is vowing to fight the ban with her high schools administration, but the editors of the yearbook insist it was their decision alone on the photo.
The five student editors of the Durango High School yearbook in Durango, Col., told the Durango Herald they were the ones who made the call not to publish a picture of senior Sydney Spies posing in a short yellow skirt midriff and shoulder-exposing black shawl as her senior portrait.
We are an award-winning yearbook. We dont want to diminish the quality with something that can be seen as unprofessional, student Brian Jaramillo told the paper on Thursday.
Spies was joined by her mother, Miki Spies, and a handful of fellow Durango High students and alumni in a protest outside the school Wednesday after, she said, administrators informed her the photo would not be permitted because it violated dress code.
I feel like they arent allowing me to have my freedom of expression, Spies told the Herald. I think the administration is wrong in this situation, and I dont want this to happen to other people.
The five editors, who said their decision was unanimous, said Spies blame was misplaced, in both targeting the administration, and believing that it was a dress code issue.
They also offered her an opportunity to include the photo in the yearbook, just not as her senior photo.

Not sure if she’s an aspiring model or porn star. Either way - no.
“you violated the rules. Was there another question ?
this is nothing...
Now how do you say Mommy was a good girl..."Here...let me show you my yearbook."
And her mother must be a fruity, too.
Anyone think she's an "A" student??
There’s nothing wrong with this picture, if you’re a Playboy bunny or a centerfold tramp in a porno magazine.
I want to know what her parents think of this picture?? Guaranteed, they are the ones who are hoping for a huge payday from this.
most likely to suckseed
Oh, horse spit and you know it. In fact, the burka is only proof that if you don’t draw the line somewhere, somebody’s insanity will.
If you check mothers facebook page/pics you see that mom and daugther are at the least into soft porn and seem to be looking into careers in the adult industry...........
This whole thing was a set-up to get publicity.......
Oh, that was bad. But very funny.

Also, mother is a born again lesbian and the news was of such importance that she received a write up this past November in a Durango paper. Can we say, “desperately seeking attention”?:

I feel like they arent allowing me to have my freedom of expression,
You are under 18 or under the supervision of adults who can be charged with all kinds of crimes in their failure of character.
Want to pose for Hustler...Leave Skool after you turn 18 and then you are an adult with freedom to express yourself any way you want.
No go back to your trailer park and clean up the mobile home....
I’m a born again lesbian too!
God stuck me in this man’s body and I want out.
I don't know about being an A student, but she's definitely "NOT GUILTY"!
Her parents okayed that?
I’m a little confused. Since when is looking like a skank a violation of most HS dress codes. At least the’s no buttcrack showing. /sarc
The only thing missing from her photo is a chart of her hourly rates.
