Discrimination of Seniors?

Amara Prohm, reporter

Recently, at Lincoln High School of the San Joaquin District in Stockton, California, a young female has been removed from the school’s year book, since she did not qualify for the dress code standards of the senior portraits. The young female appeared in a tuxedo with a red bow tie the day of her senior portraits, instead of the required gown (dress). Students should not be punished for their gender identify, especially during the remembrance of their senior year.

In reassurance, Lincoln’s superintended had confirmed that he will reimburse the young female by reprinting every yearbook, which would not exclude her presence from the senior class photo. Due to this arrangement, it would be the last re-entrance of  photos for the year book of 2015.

On the other hand, many people believe if the young female student had follow the school’s dress code, she wouldn’t have to suffer through feeling discriminated by her gender identification. This lack of equality would not only ruin her senior year, but it would also affect her in the future as well. For example, the young female student would go through a stage of depression, due to the face she could become insecure of what others would see her as through her appearance.

Discrimination should not be the problem of seniors being ban from the yearbook; however, it should embrace their diverse taste.
