School bans teen mom's senior portrait from yearbook
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- A high school student is fighting back after her senior photo was pulled from the school yearbook.
The photo shows North Carolina senior Caitlin Tiller holding her now one-year old son.
The school asked students to have their picture taken with something that best represents them or an achievement.
Tiller chose her son because he represented her drive to stay in school. The school didn't see it that way. Caitlin says she was told the picture promoted teen pregnancy. She sees it as a symbol of responsibility and love.
"They should be proud that the students are willing to stay in school and graduate and make something of their self and not try and hide it," Tiller said.
School officials would only say the yearbook should be all about the student and not an extension of the student's family.
