School Reverses Course After Canceling Honors Night For Being Too ‘Exclusive’

 

 

 

 

 

” A Rhode Island school district that had come under criticism for canceling a night for honors students over concerns that the event would be too “exclusive” is reversing its stance.

  An email sent out to parents of students at Archie R. Cole Middle School in East Greenwich over the weekend said students who would normally be honored at the spring event would instead be recognized during team-based ceremonies and graduation, the East Greenwich Patch reported.

” Members of the school community have long expressed concerns related to the exclusive nature of Honors Night,” the email stated.

  But in a statement released on Tuesday, the middle school backed off.”

Massachusetts Principal Calls Off Honors Night Because It Could Be ‘Devastating’ To Students Who Missed Mark

 

 

 

 

” MyFoxBoston.com reports that David Fabrizio, principal of Ipswich Middle School, notified parents last week of his plan to eliminate the event.

“The Honors Night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade-point average,” Fabrizio penned in his first letter to parents, the station reported.

Fabrizio also said he decided to make the change because academic success can be influenced by the amount of support a student  receives at home and not all students receive the same level of emotional and academic support at home.”
