The controversial Charter Oak High School yearbook, that substituted racially charged monikers for kids in the Black Student Union, may be reprinted, according to reporter Amanda Baumfeld. She’s filed a brief story this afternoon:
COVINA – Charter Oak High School is considering reprinting and replacing pages of its yearbook that have offensive and incorrect names, officials said Friday.
School Principal Kathleen Wiard said she is working with the book’s publisher to replace index pages of the school’s 2008 Chronicle.
“Students put incorrect names throughout the index and did not go back and correct them,” Wiard said Friday. “Most are not as offensive as the Black Student Union names but none the less they are incorrect.”
The possible reprint comes after a yearbook staff student replaced nine BSU student names with fake names – such as “Tay Tay Shaniqua,” “Crisphy Nanos” and “Laquan White” – next to their club photo in the yearbook.
*Drudge has linked to the story giving it national attention. It will be interesting to see if school administrators are going to take the incident seriously now. How long until we see this on O’Reilly or Hannity?
