    Yeah... a baby is still a random human. I can't think of any yearbook that would allow you to have a friend or your parents or something in the picture. Makes sense to me.
    And seems like they are trying to play the "promoting teen pregnancy" card when that's not really the issue, TBH.

    The article quotes the school as saying that they offered that option to her - apparently she chose not to take that option

    She may not be trying to promote it but posing in a yearbook with your cute infant definitely doesn't discourage it. I don't think this is a big deal really but I can totally understand (for multiple reasons) why the school doesn't want to publish her picture.

    At my school you had to pay to put your photo in an ad in the back. Maybe she didn't have the money, but it was offered to her.

    I was the yearbook editor in high school and we wouldn't have allowed it either we didnt glamorize a lot of things, including teen pregnancy in the main yearbook.
