An Arizona yearbook is causing controversy after a two-page spread was dedicated to students who have children or are pregnant.

The pages are titled I'm Working a Double Shift.

Parent Kathee Merkley said she has heard her 17-year-old daughter's friends saying they glued the pages together and that they're not appropriate.

"When you look at the pages at first you think it is of a child development class," she told the Arizona Republic. "But then if you look closer you see the photo of the boy hugging the belly. I think that was unnecessary."

A school board spokeswoman agreed yearbooks are to commemorate achievements and "probably this would not fall into that category."

The news comes about a week after two White Cloud, Mich., girls said their photos were left out of their yearbooks because the photos of them clearly showed their baby bumps.
