    No it isn't. If the child is a minor, they cannot be held financially responsible.

    What right do you have for equality of speech that you would want to deny another?

    No. There was a case in a neighboring town where the child lied to the parents, said he was going somewhere else, and he went to the school with a buddy, and they vandalized it. Apparently there was 100,000 dollars worth of damage. A 15 year old and a 16 year old. The parents were held financially responsible. I can get a link to that story if you'd like.

    The valedictorian is a brave and principled young man who did a fine thing. I hope others emulate him. I'd like to see hundreds of valedictorians across the country (and across all beliefs and unbeliefs) enlivening and enriching graduations with statements of their convictions.
