I know why

Just found that article via The Drudge Report.
A 14-year-old girl was beaten unconscious by several other girls at a chaperoned dance for middle school honors students, police said.

This happened at a dance for honor roll students. Not that they are any better, but usually you find that those students stay out of trouble because they concentrate on school and don't have any time for teenage bullshit. Note, this does not apply to my stepdaughter. She still gets in trouble. More on that later.
But You know why? Because of the "everybody-wins policies". They let almost the whole school go to those dances because almost everybody makes honor roll. Not just A students or A/B students.
Back to my stepdaughter, she made the A, B, C+ honor roll! Not that wasn't great effort and we are proud but it doesn't teach anything to kids. So what's next? ABCDF? Stupid.
