Jeers to the high school for cheapening the value of a high school diploma. Just recently, you gifted a diploma to a student who is a complete moron; not because he is stupid, but because he has never tried. What the hell are you doing over there? What are we teaching our kids; that if you try in school, great and if not, that's okay too? Why are you so afraid to tell a kid that he failed? You aren't doing him any favors by letting him skate on through. Real life will hit him sooner or later; you simply delayed the inevitable, and probably worsened the final outcome. Your job is to help kids become functioning adults, and you severly failed, and I am not afraid to say that you did.
