Our high school is requiring THREE rehearsals for graduation. THREE. What do the graduates have to do for graduation? They have to line up in a prescribed order, enter the stadium in a line, sit down, and wait for their names to be called before going on the stage to receive a diploma. This is not a particularly complex thing. They've been pretty much doing this sort of thing since the first day of kindergarten when they had to line up at the door, sit in assigned spots, and respond during roll call.
That administration is requiring THREE rehearsals of at least a couple hours each for the behavior the students have been engaging in for 13 years speaks of how little faith they have in the education they have provided for our children, dontcha think?
