Meetings with Decorum - Opening Keynote

The Indianapolis Public School system has warned parents not to cheer when their child's name is read out at this year's high school graduation ceremonies. A letter from the superintendent reminded families that attending a graduation ceremony is a privilege, not a right, and warned that up to 30 police officers would be present at each ceremony to ensure good order. Graduation "is a joyous time, a proud time, and a formal time," he write. "It is not a party. It is not a pep rally."

Amen. I've personally witnessed graduation ceremonies that have turned into pseudo-popularity contests with raucous cheering for some students.
