The Dumbing Down of America
Our moronic Socialist "educators" are frightened to
death that someone might excel in life.
Citing concerns about the “exclusive nature” of the annual honors night at Archie R. Cole Middle School, the Rhode Island school officials have decided to scrap the tradition.
Instead, students who would normally be recognized at the annual spring tradition will be honored during team-based recognition ceremonies and graduation.
The notice was sent to parents over the weekend in an e-mail signed by School Principal Alexis Meyer and Assistant Principal Dan Seger reports the East Greenwich Patch.
“Members of the school community have long expressed concerns related to the exclusive nature of Honors Night,” the email stated.
Translation - The students that spend weeks on end tweeting or playing video games might be offended if those who work hard succeed in life.
By having the recognition ceremonies during team-based ceremonies, it will “afford us the opportunity to celebrate the individual and collective success of all students and their effort, progress and excellence.”
One parent told ABC6 that he's not happy with the change.
“How else are they suppose to learn coping skills, not just based on success, but relative failure, it might not be failure, but understand what it takes to achieve high levels,” said parent Joe Kosloski.
"It is remarkable to what lengths people will go to avoid thought. That is tragically true. Some of us think, more of us think we think and most of us don't even think of thinking."
