So Tim, if the student has a permanent tattoo and nose ring, then what? Remember the principal's quote was essentially, it's not how he normally looks. So will the policy say: If you are a clean cut looking student, you must be clean cut looking in your photo; however, if you have permanent tattoos and piercings, that's okay. This doesn't require a policy--who cares what he looks like in the photo? I don't like my yearbook photos or driver's license photo, despite having appeared as I "normally" do.

@Kathleen

Point is, if that is how Kenton ALWAYS dressed, etc. there would not have been an issue of the picture in the yearbook. He went out of his way to look ridiculous, evening saying it was a joke, to make a mockery of the yearbook process. You show me him walking around tatted and nose ringed like that everyday, including at work, and I say put the picture in the yearbook. Otherwise, do the regular picture. Or better yet now, use his mug shot.

Again, why does anyone care how anyone looks in a yearbook photo? As to the mug shot, looks like the family will sadly have other issues to deal with legally.
