Evidence of the “no child left behind” socialist philosophy is rearing its ugly head in North Texas, hard-working and dedicated students who are rewarded with an insignia bearing the National Honor Society (NHS) emblem are restricted from displaying them. To even qualify for this prestigious honor a student must maintain a high GPA and complete community service hours, which is an important life lesson of Voluntaryism.
Citing the toll it might take on the students that did the minimum or just enough to get by, the school is protecting the feelings of the ones who didn’t earn the patch from being hurt. So the graduate students at Plano Senior High School will not be able to wear their National Honor Society stoles during their once in a lifetime graduation ceremonies next month. According to the school all students are banned from wearing National Honor Society emblems or any other club or organizational insignia of any kind during the graduation ceremonies.
The students in cross-town state education centers Plano East, and Plano West High School’s will be allowed to display their symbols of accomplishments.
Plano Senior High student, Garrett Frederick is an upset National Honor Society member and has been striving for this goal since his sophomore year. He worked hard and focused on maintaining the high GPA and completing the 20 hours of community service every semester.
Frederick exclaimed, “I’m not just an honor student, I’m an NHS student. I worked hard. I put in the hours.” He added, “I was really looking forward to wearing it and being able to say I was a part of it, because I have friends that go to Plano East High School and Plano West High School, and they’re all wearing it. So it’s like, I don’t know why we’re not allowed to wear it. I don’t get it.”
Frederick’s mother wrote the principal and received a reply that read, graduates cannot wear any club or organizational regalia. KellyAnn Frederick said that a National Honor Society sponsor claimed school administrators were adamant about all the students being able to feel like they’re included in the graduation ceremonies and to not single any students out.
KellyAnn stated, “They deserve it, they worked so hard for it. If you choose not to work that hard, then that’s okay! I wasn’t an NHS kid. I didn’t wear the NHS stole when I graduated. But friends of mine did, and I was OK!”
The school district publicly confirmed the policy on Tuesday, and are aware that it is different from nearby Plano West and Plano East High Schools.
Garrett and other overachievers are considering a petition or addressing the principal about it, but he thinks it might be too late. He still hopes that the ridiculous policy can be changed in the future so the hard-working students can enjoy the fruits of their labor. He concluded by saying, “It’s kind of a national thing that’s recognized, so I don’t know why just Plano can’t recognize it.” With this “every kid get’s a trophy” mentality and the fear of hurting the feelings of the ones who choose not to go the extra mile, this is the designed navigation straight to the socialist behavior that is plaguing other countries and is seeping into our own society. Rewarding the best, and the brightest students for their successes is an essential task that needs to be upheld for the sake of our future. Without any recognition for the dedication that was given, what will the kids of the future have to reach for?

“Evidence of the “no child left behind” socialist philosophy…”?
Excuse me, but you realize that No Child Left Behind was pushed by GW Bush. I’ve heard him called a lot of things, many of which he deserves, but I’ve never heard anyone ever accuse him of being a socialist. Does the author of this article even know what that word means? I have my doubts.
