Jamaica Ponder was suspended from Princeton High School on Monday because of the photo, Newsworks reported.

While the school declined to name the teacher, USA Today noted that Susan Parsons is listed as yearbook adviser on the school's website and that public records showed she earned a salary of $87,950 previous year. The painting of the lynchings can be seen in the upper-left corner while the racial slur has some of the letters blocked by the other objects in the picture.

Ponder says submitting a photo with the racial slur in the background was an oversight. Right now, it serves its objective from all the way in my basement, from behind the heads of my scooter-and balloon-wielding friends, from the purposefully innocent and apolitical photo that is my senior collage.

"The administration and staff of the Wall Township Public Schools strongly value the principles of free speech and inquiry in our schools and society, viewing them as the bedrock upon which our community and educational system is built", Dyer added, calling the censorship allegations "disturbing".

Junior Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago's high school yearbook photo also was altered, so the Donald Trump logo was missing from his vest.

Ponder is unhappy with the school's response. The problem isn't that they aren't flawless; the problem is that they aren't doing anything to make themselves better. "Rather, they quite literally hide behind me and litter the airways with irrelevant and frequently flawed accusations and reasonings for why things happen".

Snyder declined to comment. "The words and symbols that were used in the yearbook are neither appropriate or acceptable".

A group of parents will sit down with school officials and the yearbook adviser to discuss next steps.

About 15 students protested Ponder's suspension Monday afternoon, walking to Snyder's office with signs saying: "Suspend me!" and a petition. A petition from the students calls for the suspension to be erased from her permanent record.

Rhinold Ponder and Michele Tuck-Ponder do not agree with their daughter's suspension and plan to appeal to Princeton's civil rights commission.

Berardo said he wants administrators to reissue the yearbooks and include a signed letter by the person or people "who made the mistake". There are frictions in this town that people don't want revealed. "The kids should know that they can't be censored, unless it's rude or inappropriate".

Ponder, for her part, was pretty chill about returning to school Tuesday.
