    I'm not getting the part about the 'rules'. If the rule is the rule, then why would an apology change anything? Wouldn't she still have broken the rule? Maybe they could put her in after-school detention next year.

    She was given a chance to apologize for breaking to rule, which, if she had done so, would have allowed her to get the diploma. She refused to apologize, and opted to simply demand her diploma despite the fact that she broke the rule. Never mind that she is in no position to make demands, she rebuffed the generosity of the school to permit her to simply write out an apology. Why on earth would anyone support or encourage this kind of behavior?

    It does.

    Below I listed a picture of a typical High-School Calendar (I apologize for the bad quality). Notice that schooling ends prior to graduation.

    Valedictorians give their speeches at the Graduation, after schooling ends. I believe the rules wouldn't apply if schooling is officially over and no rules were set prohibiting profanity or vulgar language, such as 'Hell', at the Graduation Ceremony.

    If the school had to issue the diploma because she made it all the way to graduation, then you might have a point. But that just isn't the case. You are wrong.

    The point of a High School graduation is to issue a diploma to the former students. She was allowed to attend because she completed her 13 years of schooling and she is entitled to receive a diploma.

    How am I wrong?

    Schools can withhold diplomas all the way up until they grant them, and can even rescind them after they've been granted.
    That is how you are wrong.

    Do you mind providing a source for that claim?

    No. You're trying to claim that Schools can hold diplomas until granted and can rescind them afterwards as well. It's your job to prove your statement, not mine.
