So, officials at Charter Oak High School have decided to reprint and replace pages of the yearbook that include racially offensive names and numerous errors.
It also came to light that teachers and students may have known that Black Student Union members had fake names such as “Tay Tay Shaniqua,” “Crisphy Nanos” and “Laquan White” in the yearbook before they were distributed.
Here is the beginning of my story that ran today:
COVINA – Students and teachers at Charter Oak High School may have known that racially offensive names were printed in the yearbook before all of the books were distributed, officials said Wednesday.
School Board President Joseph Probst said students may have alerted a teacher of the error when the first round of books was distributed to seniors.
“Some people discovered the error first and they didn’t react as fast as they could have,” Probst said. “They weren’t sensitive to it and we need to make sure people are being responsible.”
