    re: Valedictorian Defies School District and Recites Lord's Prayer [W:618]

    so many random postings in this thread im not sure what everybody is actually arguing so ill state some facts

    The school has every right to censor, limit or not allow any speech that is given as a privileged to anybody at a school function.
    The kid broke the rules.


    now with that said people can debate thier opinions all they want about whether the kid did a good thing, bad thing etc but the facts wont change.

    Apply some common sense. The valedictorian is likely to be a pretty well-mannered kid given their accomplishment.

    Yeah, that was a long time ago though wasn't it? Things have changed a lot since 1971 I would say. We have a lot more diversity nowadays.

    Well, there was that case I mentioned earlier where the girl decided to use the word "hell" in her speech. Apparently, some of the audience weren't too happy with that either.
