Triangles and other shoddy shapes were used to cover up the girls who were supposedly showing too much skin, making for some bizarre results.
Students were also none too pleased with the lack of consistency that went into the decision. Sophomore Rachel Russel told KSTU, “I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who. There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didn’t.”
School officials have stood by their choice to alter the pics, though, saying there was a sign warning students that their snaps might be edited and Terry E. Shoemaker, the superintendent for the Wasatch County School District, told KSTU: “We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we’re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things.”
And by lying to them and changing their appearances via software rather than trying to instill good values in them? Pretty sure that's not how that works. Not to mention the photos weren't all that scandalous to begin with.
