A Rhode Island middle school has cancelled its annual academic honors night because it’s reportedly “too exclusive“, which is to say that it might make other students not so honored feel bad. And we can’t have that! Imagine the blow to their self-esteem!
The school has stated that this new course of action will “afford us the opportunity to celebrate the individual and collective success of all students and their efforts, progress and excellence.”
A quick reminder to all: don’t forget to grab your participation trophy before you leave.
