Board backs principal who nixed girl's photo

"GREEN COVE SPRINGS - A picture of a lesbian student dressed in a tuxedo will not be permitted in her high school yearbook, Clay County school officials decided.

Principal Sam Ward of Fleming Island High School initially decided to pull Kelli Davis' picture from the yearbook because Davis, who is openly gay, was dressed in boy's clothing.

The School Board took no action to reverse that decision at a Thursday night meeting attended by about 200 people, and superintendent David Owens said afterward it will stand.
Karen Gordon applauded Ward's decision, saying, 'When uniformity is compromised, then authority no longer holds.'"

In that case, Ms. Gordon, shouldn't all of the students be wearing shirts and ties?

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
