WESTLAKE, La. (CBS Houston) — Parents at one Louisiana middle school are outraged after a yearbook labeled some students as “clueless” and “empty box.”

KPLC-TV reports that S.P. Arnett Middle School in Westlake has come under fire for bullying students in the yearbook.

“I don’t think anyone meant to demean those children, but I think it was a case where an adult could have spotted this and said, ‘Later on this child is going to look back and say ‘I’m an empty box?”” Fredman Hardy, Calcasieu Parish School Board member, told KPLC. “So those sort of demeaning things probably started in good humor, but it did not end that way.”

Hardy says the issue will be addressed at the next school board meeting.

“I just wish they would have had some sort of committee at the school to review the yearbooks before they went out and looked for this type of misdirected humor that we have here,” Hardy told the station.

Middle school officials have yet to comment on the incident.
