In that case, why did the school issue an apology to parents? The school didn’t add this tag to the 8th grader’s photo in some “Islamophobic” frenzy. The child wrote it himself. Doubtless he is just having a little joke. Nothing to be concerned about. To question him, much less investigate him, would be “Islamophobic.”

“I looked down and read, most likely to bomb the U.S. and I just sat there for a second and thought, no way. This is not happening,” Brown said.

The parents wondered how something like that could have made it to the printer and been published with no oversight from school administrators.
“It was missed. There’s a faculty advisor in charge of the yearbook. They did not catch it,” explained Matthew Benson, a spokesman for the Sonoran Science Academy….
