From The Week Magazine:
Schools in Nashville have stopped posting honor rolls so as not to hurt the feelings of underachieving students. After several parents complained that the honor rolls were embarrassing, lawyers warned that the school district could be sued under a law that bars schools from releasing academic information without permission. “If there are some children that always make it and others that always don’t make it, there is a very subtle message that is sent,” said one principal. He said that a public honor roll doesn’t “fit my world view of what a school should be.”
NewMexiKen wonders if the “letter” men and women will be forbidden to wear their letter jackets/sweaters to school, too, so that the underachieving jocks won’t have their feelings hurt.
