Because he received a C and a D and she didn't believe he deserved it.
"The bottom line is there is nothing honorable about making a D," the Pasco County, Florida mom told a local news station. "I was not happy, because how can I get my child to study for a test when he thinks he's done enough."
In addition to the D, Douglas also got three A's and a C, giving him a GPA of 3.16 — more than enough to be counted among the school's best and brightest.
But thanks to his mom, the Pasco County schools superintendent has announced that the honor roll policy will be changed to allow only students with all A's or A's and B's to be considered for inclusion.
"It makes my job at home so difficult," Tillack said of the current policy.
What does your school do (or not)? When my older son was at Eckstein, no honor roll because "it hurts the other kids' feelings." It made a comeback when my younger son was there.
I don't think they did it at either high school they attended (but there was the Honor Society).
I think in some ways having an honor roll DOES matter because (1) school is about academics and (2) we celebrate other achievements at out schools, why not academics as well?
