Principal cuts student’s picture from every copy of yearbook

Student wrote alongside his picture that the principal had spent money inappropriately

by

The principal of Lake Trail Secondary School on Vancouver Island had staff trim 10th grader Brandon Armstrong’s picture from every copy of the school’s yearbook. Armstrong’s entry for “favorite memory,” read “when Ms. Carpenter spent all the school’s money on a fence instead of new textbooks.” Principal Lori Carpenter told CBC News that students are allowed to state their opinions, but that the excision was justified because the information was untrue. District staff had chosen to build the fence, not her, she said.
