Mesa High school administrators have come under fire after the school yearbook published a two-page spread devoted to teen parents.

The Arizona Republic ( ) reports that parents called in to complain about the spread in the 255-page yearbook. The spread, titled "I'm working a double shift," features photos and a description of how difficult it is to raise children while being a high school students. The photos show a teenage boy kissing a pregnant girl's stomach another boy reading to a toddler.

Parents said they felt the photos were inappropriate. However, a spokeswoman for Mesa Public Schools said she does not expect the school will change any yearbook policies as a result of the controversy.
