A New Jersey school district will issue corrected yearbooks after photos of two high-school students were altered to remove President Donald Trump’s name on their clothing.
In a letter to parents, Wall Township School Superintendent Cheryl Dyer said she has not been able to determine why it happened, but she knows in some cases how it happened.
One student wore a sweater vest with Trump’s name on it. Another student wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Trump Make America Great Again.”
One photo was intentionally altered even though the shirt the student was wearing did not violate the school’s dress code, Dyer said, while the other photo was resized to match others and it does not appear that was intentionally done to remove Trump’s name.
Dyer hasn’t been able to determine why a Trump quote submitted by a third student wasn’t included, while a quote by President Franklin Roosevelt appeared under a different photo.
The teacher who was the yearbook adviser has been suspended with pay. The corrected yearbooks should be available in about two weeks.
Mr. Trump received 63 percent of the vote in the township while Democrat Hillary Clinton won the state in last year’s election.
