A North Texas school district is having four pages of its high school yearbook reprinted to correct a photo caption that identified a student as “Black Girl.”
All white students are identified by name in the photograph of Waxahachie High School’s chapter of the National Honor Society. The teen identified as “Black Girl” is the only black student in the photo.
The district apologized for the mistake after the yearbooks were distributed. The label apparently was meant to be a placeholder until the yearbook staff could track down the student’s name, district spokeswoman Candace Ahlfinger said.
