School Bans Teen's Yearbook Picture Taken With Her Baby [VIDEO]
Trinity, NC - A teen mother is upset with the Randolph County School system because they won't allow her senior yearbook photo to be published.

The school asked students to bring props for their photo and Caitlin Tiller who attends Wheatmore High School took her picture holding her child.

"This is ridiculous because, if people can bring their football, their musical instrument, their pets, with their siblings. But I can't take a picture with my son? I don't understand," said Tiller.

The school's yearbook told her, the picture would be pulled because a baby in a school yearbook photo was not school related.

Tiller said she told about the picture being pulled, just two days before the yearbooks were to be printed. And she believes the yearbook photo guidelines were unclear.

Another news site's Facebook page says the school staff told Caitlin that her photo promoted teen pregnancy.

"A high school student in North Carolina says her school pulled the yearbook photo she took holding her son. Last summer, the school invited seniors to include a prop in their senior picture that represents an achievement or something that best represents them. Just two days before the yearbook was printed, Caitlin Tiller says school staff told her the picture was being pulled because it promoted teen pregnancy."

What do you guys think? And please do watch the video and read the articles before posting.

- Do you think the school was right to ban the photo?
- Do you think it promotes teen pregnancy?
- Do you think having a baby and finishing high school is an achievement?

Not many teen moms finish high school. And at least she didn't abort the baby. She gave birth to him, and went on to finish school.

Discuss.

She sees her son as a prop?

The school has the right to not post the picture. Yes, the way teens are today it would promote teen pregnancy. And lastly, she should see it as an achievement to graduate whether she has a child or not.

Have to admit, having your baby with you in your senior yearbook photo with you does seem a bit weird for some reason

The Facebook link says the school said they could include a prop that represents an achievement or something that represents them. Perhaps she believes her son represents her in some way.

Maybe she sees it as an achievement *facepalm* if so the generations get more and more fucked, in this case literally (ending with conception)

Having experienced teen pregnancy myself, I would consider it an amazing achievement to finish school. I became a social pariah (this was in the 80s), and I quit under the pressure. Oh how I wish I'd graduated, in spite of having the responsibility of raising my child.

I hope she would see it that way. But the school has the final say of what can and cannot be in the year book.

Not to be rude and I'm sure you love you child very much. If you could have waited 5 more years before you had them, do you think you could have provided better for them?

The baby is not a member of the student body or faculty and should not appear in the yearbook.

People who don't believe in peak oil fall into 3 categories:
Uninformed.
In denial.
Too stupid to understand it.
Which one are you?

Yes, of course I could have. My father would have put me through college if it hadn't happened, and I could have provided so much more for my child. But, getting pregnant was not something I meant to happen. It was a mistake, yes, and if I had it to do over, I definitely would wait. But I can't change what happened, and I did the best I could by taking responsibility and working my ass off to provide for her by myself.

Granted, it would be nice if this girl didn't have to have gotten pregnant so early, BUT
There are some kids who have kids and do extraordinarily well. Just had to point that out.

I think if there aren't just props allowed in the photos (if the school also allowed pets or siblings), she should be allowed. If it was for 9-11th grade, i'd say no, but since senior photos are generally allowed leeway and can include scenes, vehicles, pets, etc., why not?

Seriously, what would be the WORST thing to happen if they allowed it? "OOHH I'm gonna have a baby so I can pose with it!" ?! Pshhh.

And that is the most common thing that happens with teen pregnancies, and the school does not want to promote that.
