Banning Honor Roll -- And Purses

I may be the last to have found out, but apparently Needham High in Mass. decided to stop printing the honor roll in the paper, and has been widely riculed for it (Kids wouldn’t be so stressed if we just allowed them to fail). Boston Herald via EdNews.org.

Meanhile, Joanne Jacobs points out that oversized purses are being banned in some parts of the country (Schools bag purses). "Next, they’ll have to ban pockets," she quips.

Given the space alloted to youth crime in our newspapers, it is ridiculous to eliminate any opportunity to commend those young people who are excelling. For resources that will assist the young people in your life with making the Honor Roll, visit YouthPlay.
