Florida Mother Outraged After School Puts Son on Honor Roll

When Beth Tillack learned that her son had made his middle school's honor roll, she immediately took away his computer privileges and called the school to demand a retraction.

The shocking reaction to something most parents celebrate by defacing their car's bumper was prompted by a D that Douglas got in civics.

"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."

Dade City's Pasco Middle School places students on its honor roll based on their Grade Point Average.

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.

"If you made a C, you're not on the honor roll," Kurt Browning told the Tampa Bay Times.

"It makes my job at home so difficult," Tillack said of the current policy.

She was flabbergasted when Douglas asked for his iPod back, saying he earned it through his placement on the honor roll.

"There definitely should be a cut off," she said.
I heartily congratulate her work ethic.

She has a point. There is always room for more improvement.

I admit that when I read "Florida Mother..." I thought the reason would be way more messed up than this. Good for her. It should be difficult to make the honor roll. Let's be a little more discerning.

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

Dunno what's more funny: The fact that she's not Asian or the fact that this place in Fluriduh, the mecca of herp derp.

Bravo to that mom.

You see that is the problem though, getting D is good enough to make the honour roll so students think they don;'t even need to improve. A D? Like fucking seriously come on.

Re: Florida Mother Outraged After School Puts Son on Honor Roll

if she wants quality education standards she shouldn't send her kids to a public school


Press Play to wake up.

And then join the 100 Years Alan Pardew Club!
