Principal cuts student’s picture from every copy of yearbook

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


 

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.

Principal cuts student’s picture from every copy of yearbook

  1. Those who cut out the boy's picture should be ashamed of themselves. This smacks of retaliation. IF the comment was inappropriate, it could have been blacked out with a marker while the students picture remained in the yearbook. Why did the yearbook editors and/or teacher advisor not catch it?

  2. Were there grief counselors? Please, tell me they had grief counselors there for Ms. Carpenter. To have her reputation for educational leadership and professionalism besmirched by such degrading and disrespectful comments is entirely reprehensible.
    Anyways, she showed the little snot that he's not the boss of her!
    Don't you think we should be teachin' them conflict resolution–
    in teacher's college?
