School Apologizes After Yearbook Caption

A Texas school district apologized to a student identified only as "Black Girl" in a high school yearbook photo.

All the white students are identified by name in a photograph of the Waxahachie High School (search) National Honor Society (search). The teen identified as "Black Girl" is the only black student in the photo.

A schools spokeswoman said the caption apparently was intended as a placeholder until the yearbook staff could identify the student. She told The Waxahachie Daily Light the label was a poor choice, but wasn't malicious.

The spokeswoman said the school district will reprint the yearbook pages affected by the mistake.
