My Opinion

It's just my opinion but what in the world is going on with these schools arresting parents and holding diploma's.  I was watching the news this morning and I could not believe that one school district actually arrested a parent for disorderly conduct after she Woo-Hoo'ed for her child getting their hard earned diploma!  Then there was one where they with held a boy's diploma until he does 20 hours of community service.  Okay, that one is ridiculous.  The guy did not do the screaming so why should he be the one do the "time" when he was just standing on the stage.  I don't agree that they should punish anybody at all.  I've been at the graduations where they screaming goes on and I don't like it but I totally understand the excitement of the parents and family.  I don't know what can be done but these things are just not right.  Poor kids.

Whoa! That does seem too extreme! My family is going to do a bit of screaming for my finally graduating baby cousin, but we will do it at the family party, not the ceremony.
