    That seems like a bloody insensitive thing to do, if you ask me.

    Sure, I can see why you'd not want people cheering inappropriately, but this sort of punishment seems rather extreme.

    Well It seems the majority of parents want the applaud to wait till the end. That's pretty weak to take away the students diploma just because their parents have no self control. It's also sad though you can't even have a ceremony without someone screw it up. It's not difficult to follow these simple rules.

    The principle for making up such a rediculous rule. Graduation is a time of change, when a person goes out into the world on their own. They're supposed to go with pride, not with shame. The ceremony isn't a place in which you can control how much people applaud or cheer. Trying to make them not cheer is like trying to make them not to boo in a game.

    Err, what's Head-In-Ass about that?

    Sure that's extremely harsh, and stupid, but I can see why they did it, even if they did take it to extremes.

    That district is crazy. We told them the same thing at our graduation, and people didn't respect that at all.

    Are you serious? so when murders become common we should just except it because stopping it is impossible? At first I can see school allowing a few cheer here and there, because yes parents get excited but when no one can hear what's going on,not knowing whether its a graduation ceremony or the Stanley cup play off games well...I say someone took it a little far.

    It shouldn't have to be the school to discipline the adults, they get complaints, what are they suppose to do.

    "Sorry we wouldn't want to infringe on peoples rights to be assholes, it's in the constitution or whatever document they seem to hide behind."

    I don't see the logic here. Any parent knowing that their children would be graduating would be in a state of euphoria. It's an indication of a relatively good upbringing.

    Why'd they impose such an unreasonable implementation anyway?

    Blame Dean White. It was his idea, which he tried out on my school first. I hated it too, and so did most of my class. I was glad when he left for IPS.

    Really? My B-S Detector is going *ding!*

    So this is how you show the next generation what "mature" and "adult" behavior looks like? Somebody needs to ground these clowns, and give these graduates what they devoted years of their lives to earn.

    Also.. Can someone explain me, why a graduation person is responsible for others behavior.
    I learned in the school, I didn't do anything wrong, give me my diploma. Why the hell I suffer, because of someone's cheering, even if it's my family.

    Really.. As much as US is a free country, there is such ridiculous stuff..

    That's the biggest insult of all. Even disregarding the fact that the parents' noise was brief and hardly worth going crazy about, the students themselves didn't do anything wrong. Why should they be punished at all? Acting like children and withholding their diploma from them on a technicality is bad enough, but community service? Whoever thinks that's even vaguely justified needs some form of brain surgery.

    That's without mentioning the fact that the contract their parents signed ruled that they act in a "dignified" way. Cheering on your child at their graduation is in no conceivable way dignified; nor should a graduation be a "solemn occasion" in the first place. It's a celebration of far too many years of education and work, and of the life ahead; it's not a funeral march.

    What a joke.

    There is a big difference between breaking some random contract that prevents parents from being "undignified" at their child's graduation ceremony and committing murder. The former does not need to be so strictly enforced because it is an innocuous act and very easy for anyone to do (Whoops! I hollered out her name! Wtf? Do diploma?).

    Well, they still have their diploma guys, just not an actual piece of paper diploma to hang up or frame or whatever.

    If I were those kids, I'd just sue the district for incompetency and get my diploma, plus some money for damage and public humiliation. Any "contract" the parent's signed was most likely a very unbinding document that wouldn't hold up at all in court. And any intelligent judge could see how ridiculous it all is. It's not the students fault anyway. If someone should be doing community service, it's the parents, for breaching the "contract."

    Wait, are you saying she's being punished because some ELSE cheered for HER?

    Then why blame the person getting the diploma?

    Graduations seriously aren't fucking special anymore. At my sister's graduation, seniors weren't allowed to throw their hats up in the air... that's fucking terrible.

    If it was really 2-3 seconds of cheering then it really is BS. There could be more to the story, but I doubt it. My school had the same rule. That's why I hate graduations--graduation is supposed to be your time, not theres. I tired of people trying to control your life when unwarranted. Those kids and parents should be given some slack. it sounds like it was hardly out of control--just the school board being assholes.
