Maybe they should post the names of the parents who don't want the honor students' names posted on honor rolls on a "shame roll" of their own . 'Cause it's a damn shame when a dedicated, high-aiming student's accomplishments are minimized to soothe the "feelings" of the average or underachiever.

What a bunch of dog poop.

Sounds like corporate prep school to me.

Work your *** off above and beyond what's required of your position, don't ever get sick and you get your paycheck.

Study your *** off, make straight A's, don't play hooky and you get your report card.

Excellent!

Always found it retarded that the honor roll kids got so much extra attention and free ****. In fact I found it down right unfair!

Shouldnt matter if you get a D or an A, as long as you pass you should be treated equally. Having an honor roll and extra privledges feels the the starting of "you will be rich", "you will be poor".

And it's true! Honor roll stundents get TONS of free **** and discounts, damn snobs!

" My kids on the honor roll"

"yeah, well my kid can put her fist in your face!"

And this is why we have a poor and rich class later on in life.

Seems to me like instead of shaming the lower grade students, they should spend all those extra honor roll student funds on making the lower grade students catch up.

Only a lawyer could recommended that a school board take such action, what judge in his right mind would rule in favor of "mediocrity training"?

Law run amuck.

I never went above and beyond to strive to get on the honor roll, or to graduate at the top of my class in high school(graduated with a low 3 something GPA). And if you look now, one of the top 5 got knocked up and is on welfare, and 2 more never decided to do anything other than work at a factory. The others are indeed enrolled in a university. Even so, I'm the first of our class to graduate from collage, and with a Bachelor's. So the honor roll don't mean jack.

So I really don't care about the honor roll, but I will agree this is a BS reason for banishing it.
