Teacher Censors Trump Shirts, Quotes in High School Yearbook

Unbelievably, the teacher got suspended.

Several students at a New Jersey high school were shocked to find their Trump shirts and quotes had magically disappeared in the final print of their yearbook. 

According to The Daily Mail, two male students from Wall High School (in a very pro-Trump county) both wore Trump gear in their school photos and both had their shirts censored. A female student used a Donald Trump quote for her picture but it wasn’t printed by her name. A teacher is responsible for censoring the content and has been suspended while an investigation takes place.

From the Mail:

High school junior Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago is an enthusiastic fan of the president. He wore a navy blue sweater with the logo 'Trump Make America Great Again' stitched on its breast. 

When he received his yearbook, the image had been cropped to exclude the logo. 

The same was done to 17-year-old Grant Berardo. His was even more obvious - the large white Trump slogan printed across his chest was entirely wiped from the image before the yearbooks went to print. 

Dobrovich-Fago's younger sister submitted a quote by the president to be included beneath her profile [as class president] but it wasn't printed either.

It was: 'I like thinking big, if you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.' 

No other clothing was Photoshopped and another student quoted Franklin Delano Roosevelt for their picture and it made it into the yearbook.

The teacher was named by NJ.com as technology teacher Susan Parsons. The Wall Township Public Schools Superintendent Cheryl Dyer released a statement:

There is nothing in Wall Township High School’s student dress code that would prevent a student from expressing his or her political views, or support for a political figure, via appropriate clothing and attire. Indeed, the administration applauds students for becoming involved in politics, making their voices known, and taking an active part in our democracy.

Wall High School was not aware of and does not condone any censorship of political views on the part of our students...the allegations are disturbing, and any inappropriate challenge to these principles will be rectified as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.

Similarly, last month, TruthRevolt reported on a North Carolina high school that recalled every student’s yearbook because one student quoted the president for her senior picture. The district pulled the already-printed books over a “build that wall” quote and had them reprinted with the quote removed.

But hey, it's better to start the attacks on free speech early because tyrannical colleges are just around the corner for these students. At least this way they won't be shocked.
