Skip to comments.Teacher suspended after removing 'Trump' from yearbook
Posted on 06/13/2017 11:27:53 AM PDT by BenLurkin
Two students complained after their photographs were apparently edited to remove Mr Trump's name and his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.
Another student was upset that a quote by Mr Trump that she had submitted for the yearbook was not included.
The teacher who advised the yearbook team has been placed on paid leave.
"References to and support of President Trump were involved in each of these incidents," Ms Dyer wrote in a statement published over the weekend.
She added that the teacher's actions amounted to "censorship and the possible violation of First Amendment rights" to free expression.
Third-year student Grant Berando told the Asbury Park Press on Friday that the alteration was an obvious case of Photoshop.
"I sent it to my mom and dad, just like 'You won't believe this.' I was just overall disappointed," he said about his photo, which had been edited to show him wearing a non-descript black shirt.
Other references to the 2016 presidential election were not altered, students say.

Note also the deterioration of the photo from left to right.
This guy didn’t know diddly squat about how to do this properly.
Sad that friends of friends on FB are saying this young man looks stupid. I suggest those liberals look in the mirror.
Exactly. This is some truly scary stuff, and if a civil war ever does break out, leftists “educators” are at risk of being at the very top of angry Americans’ target lists
‘Montana, who was freshman-class president, was missing a Trump quote that was meant to appear beneath her photo. I like thinking big. If you are going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big, it read, according to CNN.’
Liberals are so petty and mean, just like the children they are.....................
Hopefully, suspension and pay will be temporary — to be replaced by permanent removal and unemployment.
....The teacher violated multiple students’ civil rights...
...So we gave her a paid vacation...
This “teacher” should be forced to pay the entire expenses of a complete and correct reprint of all the yearbooks. Along with a written apology for the censorship done that required the reprint. This statement should be on the first page of the yearbook.
“Liberals are so petty and mean, just like the children they are.....................”
Like middle school, (jr. high school in my day), students. Quite possibly the meanest age group of children. Old enough to know how to inflict damage without the tempering of knowing why they shouldn’t.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Children of the Corn.
It would be the work of a very few minutes to do a good job of that in Photoshop. Must have been a real hack. The very concept of blacking out what the kid's tee shirt said, seeing that it was nothing obscene or nasty (like "Suck my ___", which would be a common tee shirt design in NYC), is abhorrent. I am very happy to see that teacher suspended, to let them know the severity of what they did---impose their libtard political views on someone else under their control.
Should be fired and put in jail for hate speech.
The school also stands the cost of reprinting the school yearbooks.
They could have at least fixed the hair that’s sticking out on the right side as long as they were taking liberties with the young man’s picture.
One of my high schools, the one where we play rec b’ball a couple of times a week.
My question is were Obama shirts or buttons edited out of the yearbook photos over the past eight years? If so, were there no complaints? Our local Gannett newsrag would have howled if they had gotten wind of such a diss of The Won. But as I heard nothing I’ll assume it didn’t happen. I need to go look over some old yearbooks for political messages; if I find none then they’ve been removing all (or nobody has worn partisan gear at the photo shoots until this time around).
If Obama or Hillary was on the shirt it would be lauded as wonderful. Her @ass should be fired; if she would stoop to this, what else is she capable of? Crackpot criminal = teacher in today’s America.
A teacher is suspended during the summer.
