Sounds pretty legitimate to me.
This is a further anecdotal indication that the average public school administrator is a blithering idiot.
Another case of zero-tolerance = Lack of common sense.
Rules are Rules. Sorry pal. You knew the drill when you first signed into the vast lunacy of the edjamacashional system.
Perhaps they’ll mail your diploma to you.
One indicator it is past time to hit the reset button is when the letter of the law out weighs the spirit of the law.
Our culture is rapidly becoming something that should not be salvaged.
He should have told them she was dieing of AIDS. Free pass and a tutor would have been minimum.
Punish him for caring for his family ... that should be the job of the state.
If his mom had medical issues he should have let the state assume custody of him. No child should ever be allowed to care for a parent.
Bad boy, punishment due.
My suggestion, if Austin Fisher is not allowed to walk, then all Seniors should sit down and refuse to walk in support of Austin.
Hoping all good FReepers will sign the petition and pass the word.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if all his classmates boycotted the graduation exercise in sympathy?
I’m choking back tears at the thought of it.
My suggestion is that if he's not allowed to walk, they all should stand up, turn around, lift their gowns, and display a bright shining mooooon to the pigs who call themselves "educators."
I understand rule, but they must be tempered with common sense.
I totally agree.

Why doesn’t his mom call in and excuse his absences?
