Probably just me, but I feel bad for ALL the students in that photo. I wouldn't want to be the kid who was photoshopped out, or the kd with the sticker, or a kid whose face is blurred. I'm sure the school will be more efficient in handling such matters in the future. This WOULD NOT have been a decision left up to the PTO in my building...just based on Respect...not about bias or racism... Just a side note...everyone is in class photos in my district. Thse who don't want individual pictures don't have photos taken...I've never thought about how that jives with our parent permission photo policy... The OP is from a neighboring town to my district....trust me...this WOULD NOT fly.
