Not “inclusive”: Students barred from wearing National Honor Society stoles to graduation

June 2, 2016

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

The kids who spent high school throwing spitballs would feel left out.

A high school in Texas won’t let its honor students wear their white satin National Honor Society stoles to graduation because that wouldn’t be “inclusive.”

That is, not inclusive of the students who spent their high-school years ditching class, throwing spitballs, and sending selfies to each other. So unfair!

Here’s the report from Fox News:

“A National Honor Society sponsor told a parent that administrators from Plano Senior High School do not want to single any students out, WFAA.com reported.”

***

“The school said in a statement, ‘We are aware that many honor students may not also be members of the National Honor Society, but the school has opted not to include additional regalia per tradition….'”

“Honor students” who aren’t members of the National Honor Society? Isn’t that a tad Orwellian?

But I forgot: Everyone’s an “honor student” nowadays–just as every kid in the Tiny Tots sports leagues gets a trophy, just for “participating.” We can’t damage the youthful snowflakes’ self-esteem.
