I think I may have grabbed my kid walked up to that administrator and demended the diploma and an applogy on the spot. That kid had to be totaly embarassed. I'm with T.P.F. on this and I may have landed in jail also.

You are there in your life raising and supporting your child all of those years watching them grow into an adult and something like this happens.... WTF...
I get angry just thinking about it and the B * * CH who wouldn't give the student his diploma after he earned it.. Just for blowing his family a kiss...

There are two sides to every story..... But, it seems that he just threw a simple kiss to his family...


yep, seemed innocent enough to me.

Just sick of the stories that seem bad until you see the video. Like the tazered 72 year old lady. She deserved it. And the one of the ambulance passenger that should have been arrested.

Yeah even if they were being sarcastic or mischevious, they worked years for that diploma... the kids parents pay the taxes that pay for the teachers and that kids education. IMO, if the student had all of their credits to graduate and the appropriate GPA, then give them the damn diploma already.

You can go out and shoot somebody and still get a diploma (albeit in prison). So give the friggin kid theirs already!!

I agree it is crazy....................but if they were told ahead of time what was acceptable behavior and what was not - then the student bears the blame. The younger generation just does not want to follow "rules" and hence we have social decline.

Granted it is insane that the High Schools are taking all the "fun" out of Graduation, but rules are rules. In the "real world" you need to follow them, so you might as well begin with the this rite of passage.

I am not sure how they can deny him his diploma if he completed his studies. But I can see them not giving it to him at the commencement and making him wait until a late date.

Understandable... but we are talking about a blown kiss here (are you Catholic btw?
).

If the kid got up to the stage, whipped out their schlonger or popped their top, OK. Fine. No diploma for you. But come on, they blew a kiss. Even if it was mischevious, you worked your whole life (at age 18) for this moment... Geesh.

I think it was rediculous not to give it to him. I did read the story and he did break the rules which was stupid of him.

I am beginning to feel like I am in the minority because I think it is important to be respectful of others.

this country was built on telling the man to F-off.

they told us we couldn't toss our caps at graduation...we did anyways.

so dumb. seems I always hear about school administrators on some kinda power trip.

sounds like maybe they had problems in the past with prior graduating classes. but if so why make the rest pay. but that just speculation, and I know the internet is no place for speculation.

If that was misbehaving, I hate to even imagine what some of the other rules are.

I know they have to run a tight ship, but come on. That's just nuts!

Didn't click the link or watch the vid, but I have to say, Bugsy, that your point about kids not following the rules is a bit off base. Kids always challenge the rules. Always have, always will. Many would argue that subsequent generations challenging the rules are the cause of social progress, as opposed to social decline.

comrades... Iagree with Sleeper... Kids will always challenge the rules.. I did when I was that age & sure the rest of you did as well...

I did not challenge the rules when it came to something important. If you work hard to get something, or you willing to break the rules and risk not getting what you worked for? You need to pick your battles and know your choices have consequences.

I agree the graduation/diploma issue is a little extreme, but so is life!
