It's sad when we you

It's sad when we you celebrate being adequate. Why not take the money for your celebration, which might turn out to be just adequate, and invest it back in the school and children so that they can be more than adequate?

It is a way for them to talk

It is a way for them to talk with parents and everyone feel rewarded and more motivated. I think it is a good way to get parents involved to encourage more success. Do you ever reward your children for reaching goals? When you do a great job at work,you are usually rewarded with a raise and at home your family celebrates your success! SAME PRINCIPLE!!!

As more & more school systems

As more & more school systems ignore failure ( no F's on report cards) and discourage excellence ( no Valedictorians) what's left to celebrate if not adequacy?
I answered a poll recently which asked what I thought was the greatest threat facing America today. America is threatened by a shortage of shame. There's nothing too low or outrageous. There's a rationalization or excuse or somebody else to blame for things once considered shameful.
