An Ipswitch, Ma., middle school’s decision to cancel its honors assembly this year because it may be too upsetting for some students proves that America is indeed turning into a nation of wimps, and our schools are enablers in the process.

The decision to cancel this annual tradition was made by the school’s principal, David Fabrizio.

“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,” said Fabrizio according to MyFoxBoston.

The principal also cited students’ unequal access to a supportive home environment as entering into his decision.
