SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Teachers at a middle school had to fix more than 1,000 yearbooks after a racial slur was accidentally printed on the cover.

The yearbook staff used a historical map from the 1800’s which shows Northern San Diego County.

But on that map was the reference to a place where a freed slave lived and used a racial slur.

The district is apologizing, saying no one intended for it to happen.

All the yearbooks have been corrected, with staff scratching off the word on each one.
