Racist Images Force CA School To Reprint Yearbook

A Fresno, California middle school is reprinting its yearbook after racist images depicting a Ku Klux Klan symbol and a Confederate flag image were discovered on the teacher’s page. The Fresno Unified School District tells the “Fresno Bee” the student responsible for the images was not aware of the negativeness of such symbols when they were designed as part of the Computech Middle School’s yearbook. The page is part of a dedication to an English and social studies teacher. The teacher says students learned about the Civil War in her class and the page was likely made to show that.
