Utah School District Condemns Offensive Yearbook Quote

The Salt Lake City School District condemned a student’s yearbook quote after a social media post about it went viral. A student at Highland High School posted on Facebook a photo of another student’s yearbook statement that read, “There are two genders and a lot of mental illnesses.” The school district confirmed the incident in a statement. The post was shared more than 3,000 times. The school district’s Interim Superintendent Larry Madden apologized to those felt attacked. He said the district will investigate what led to the quote’s publication and ensure a similar incident doesn’t happen in the future.
