A Massachusetts principal has been criticized for canceling his school's Honors Night, saying it could be 'devastating' to the students who worked hard, but fell short of the grades.
MyFoxBoston.com reports that David Fabrizio, principal of Ipswich Middle School, notified parents last week of his plan to eliminate the event.

Massachusetts principal calls off Honors Night because it could be 'devastating' to students who missed mark
Yep, life’s a b*tch - deal with it.
It’s getting to the point where you can identify a Massachusetts-based news article just by the title...
Yeah, why give out grades at all?
“Everybody’s a Winnah!!!”
Just pass out honors to everyone Or better yet - select a gay bi-gendered trans-neutered femboy. Give the honor to it.
But of course the "My Kid Beat Up Your Honor Student" stickers would be perfectly ok.
And no keeping attendance, either. Some kids get sicker than others.
And, by the way, no sports teams, because some kids can't dunk.
And no cheerleaders, because some kids aren't as pretty as others.
And no band, because not everyone can have the same musical talent.
CELEBRATE UNIFORMITY !
Especially is it contains the word “gay” or “lesbian”, i.e. gay Biblical play at MA high school.
I don’t understand how normal people can stand living in that screwed up state.
He blames academic success on parental support. Time to ban parental support or keep the kids at school 24/7.
Don’t want to hurt kids self-esteem do we? Because life should be nothing but a series of happy events for everybody. That way, everybody is a success. Whoopee.
A lot of people are disappointed they didn’t make the sports teams. I assume honoring them will not happen.
What a low-life pansy.
Your bias against trisexuals is showing...

THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.
Some things about living still weren’t quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron’s fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away.
It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn’t think about it very hard. Hazel had a perfectly average intelligence, which meant she couldn’t think about anything except in short bursts. And George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his ear. He was required by law to wear it at all times. It was tuned to a government transmitter. Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains.
Then call off GRADUATION ceremonies as well, cuz it might hurt someone’s FEELINGS they didn’t..........
What this ass hat doesn't seem to get is that cancelling Honors Night can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class and excelled and risen to the top.
That PC sword cuts both ways.
Or is it OK because the honor students in his school do not represent a sufficient cross section of all races? Possible?
Also, I wonder what the National Honor Society will have to say about his decision.
translation of the principle’s words: “Let’s place a priority on failure to work hard enough over success.”
His message to the students: “Learn to get along instead of getting ahead.”
His message to the future: “Lower your expectations of us, we will not meet them.”
