    This is on the same levek of stupidity as the pop tart gun brew-ha-ha. These numb-nuts can't deny her fom getting her diploma. Just goes to show that education and intelligence aren't the same thing.

    Everyday there is some occurrence that shows this system to be broken and utterly stupid. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a choice? That education funds were actually attached to kids rather than administrators and teachers.

    All we hear from educators is that aren't paid enough. Stuff like this makes me think they'te way overpaid.

    And, all we hear from the Libbos, is how we need to shutup and let the edicated folks make all the decisions.

    You shouldn't overgeneralize the stupidity of one teacher to teachers in general. There's stupid everywhere, no matter what the field.

    Re: Native American student denied diploma for wearing tribal feather

    When several of my fellow high school graduates decided to 'celebrate' graduation by doing something against school rules during the ceremony (and busted before they could accomplish it), they were not permitted to attend the ceremony, but got their diplomas mailed to them. The punishment fit the crime.

    $1000 fine? Are they nuts?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    I agree. That's a pretty hefty fine for something that was relatively minor. Some law breakers don't even have to pay fines that big.

    The profession should spend more time purging it's ranks of the stupidty, before demanding pay raises.

    I would tell them to stick their fine up their asses. I mean, really, what are they going to do?

    Seems to me like the school board is making too much of this. First off, this feather is part of her heritage, and considering how important this can be to her, I think the board should have made an exception. I know that technically she broke the rules, and she shouldn't have, but this didn't have to occur. Oh and the $1000 fine is ridiculous.

    They're going to withhold her diploma. Illegally. She had already earned her diploma before this dispute arose, and it is rightfully hers.

    Really, I wonder where it is that they think they get the authority to impose such a fine, or to attempt to collect it. They are not a law enforcement agency nor a court. I very much doubt if there was any proper due process involved in their effort to impose this fine. $1,000 is a felony-level fine. I don't think any government agency at any level has the authority to impose such a fine without giving the subject of that fine a chance at a full trial by jury.
