Woke high schools in Colorado are cancelling their valedictorian programs for fear that dumb kids will feel bad that one kid was crowned the school’s smartest.
I another move to dumb down America, a Colorado school district is ending its valedictorian awards starting in 2026.
Per Fox News:
Starting with the class of 2026, the Cherry Creek School District in western Arapahoe County, Colorado, will not give special recognition to students who have earned the highest grade-point average in their class at graduations, according to FOX 31 Denver KDVR.
The school district notified parents about the ceremonial change in a recent newsletter, the local news station reported.
The newsletter said faculty have found the tradition no longer appropriate for their students.
“The practices of class rank and valedictorian status are outdated and inconsistent with what we know and believe of our students,” said the letter, which is dated March 9, 2022.
“We believe all students can learn at high levels, and learning is not a competition.”
It’s just another way these useless leftists destroying our system of education are dumbing down schools and making “excellence” a dirty word.
This school district in Colorado should be shut down and everyone working there should be barred from ever teaching again.
