Proud parent of an honor roll student? How could you be so insensitive? Shame on you.
Folks, want to see what political correctness gone badly looks like? Look to a Massachusetts school district. We can debate Obamcare, the debt, immigration but they don’t matter. No topic of national importance will mean a damn thing if we are teaching our kids that RESULTS don’t have a reward. That results are something to hide for fear of offending others. Do you think kids in China or India give a rats ass if someone in the US worked hard but didn’t get an A? Do you think they will not hold appreciation nights when all the jobs our kids aren’t qualified for are shipped to their countries?
Fabrizio also justified his decision by claiming it was unfair to reward good grades — which can be be influenced by the home environment and supportive parents — because not all of students have access to equal amounts of academic and emotional support.
So we are going to punish the kids that do? And shouldnt’ we be addressing the real problem – the lack of academic and emotional support from a country that sees 48% of kids born out-of-wedlock. I am losing my mind with these liberals. The very society they crave is responsible for the ills they rage against. It would be funny if it weren’t so maddening.
Thanks to the leadership of our President, this nation has become hostile towards success. Once something to aspire to, now success is demonized. Those who succeeded are given no credit for their accomplishment. They are accused of having had unfair advantage or worse, taken advantage of those who didn’t succeed. Can we stop this idiocy before our kids permanently learn this lesson?
A Massachusetts principal has been criticized for canceling his school’s Honors Night, saying it could be ‘devastating’ to the students who worked hard, but fell short of the grades.
MyFoxBoston.com reports that David Fabrizio, principal of Ipswich Middle School, notified parents last week of his plan to eliminate the event.
“The Honors Night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade-point average,” Fabrizio penned in his first letter to parents, the station reported.
