McClatchy High prank turns dangerous; 30 banned from graduation ceremonies

]About 30 students sprayed profane graffiti, wrapped toilet paper, pitched eggs and smeared peanut butter throughout the Land Park school's campus overnight Sunday as part of a senior prank. The extensive nature of the hijinks led to one student with a peanut allergy being sent to a doctor and others not being able to attend school.

The sad part is, I know everyone who participated in the prank and these are the kids who have been excellent students throughout their four years at McClatchy and they did a very silly and unfortunate thing," he said.

Gardon pointed to students who have used drugs and drunk alcohol who will still walk for graduation. He said he's unsure if it's fair for students who are known campus leaders to be banned from receiving their diploma on stage.

Lambert deemed the prank a "teachable moment," saying such actions would not be tolerated in college or the working world. He has met with most parents of students who were involved and said this is an emotional time for them.

My comment on there:
So students should be denied an education because of a disability which violates the ADA and the school should incure debt all for a few mindless students 'harmless prank'??
You can cry "nanny state" all you want but such actions mean these fools do require a nanny and a naughty chair, too!
What they did was vandalism it is illegal and there is precedence of penalty. They're graduating?

Most people are voting for them not to graduate! :banana

If they wanted to attend graduation, maybe they should have acted like they were grown up to attend such an event.

Mom must be so proud... :banghead
