A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Was watching an O'Reilly Factor segment on this new requirement at some high schools in the San Fernando have for attendence at graduation ceremonies. The schools are requiring students to have plans to attend a college or join the military. Erika Karres, a professor at University of North Carolina demonstrated that she is a thick-skulled elitist.

First off, the requirement is atrocious. Graduation is for students who have completed all the requirements set forth by the state and the school district. Forcing students to go to college or the military as an additional prerequisite for attending the ceremony is wrong.

Karres kept talking about in wacky new-age terms, talking about giving the students a "ticket to the brightest future" and other claptrap. She wouldn't really address the point at issue: the elitism that the schools are perpetuating is wrong.
