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.

Reset.

My suggestion, if Austin Fisher is not allowed to walk, then all Seniors should sit down and refuse to walk in support of Austin.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if all his classmates boycotted the graduation exercise in sympathy?

I understand rule, but they must be tempered with common sense.

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

Why were the absences unexcused?

Every year about this time we get treated to a plethora of sob stories about poor graduates who won’t be able to “walk,” because of some horrible injustice. Situations transpire.

If this was downtown Cleveland, they could probably fit the entire “graduating” class into a small elevator.

That’s just absolute crap. He took two jobs, cared for his ailing mother, and he still got enough of his schoolwork done that he was eligible to graduate.

The kid deserves a standing ovation.

So this is a law, a rule if you will THEY choose to enforce.

Seems to me one of the biggest problems we have had leading up to the “H” of a mess we have in our society today includes the lack of laws, rules enforcement at the hands of Leftists no less.

THEY take a stand on something like this!?

INCREDIBLE!

Well......Up is down, and down is up with the Left in charge of anything. What a mess!

Everyone is missing the elephant in the room.

He’s male. Strike One.
He’s white. Strike Two.
He’s self-reliant. Strike Three.
If he is heterosexual, then he is really sunk.
