When a California high school's yearbook was published with multiple errors, including offensive alterations to the names of Black Student Union members, administrators only offered affected students stickers to cover up the mistakes, angering many in the community. "It has caused immeasurable pain and embarrassment to the students and their parents," said Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, in a letter to the school board president. "Unfortunately, your response has been even more painful." Hutchinson asserts that the district has failed to either formally apologize to the affected students or say whether it will be taking any disciplinary action in the matter. School officials indicated they were still looking into the matter.
