What in the heck is wrong with our city schools? Your almost half page story about Western High School commencement policy ( "Western to review commencement policy" May 17) indicates there are some idiots in charge.
Denial of the commencement right only because of post-graduate intentions, i.e., attending a four year college, borders on elitism, snobbery, whatever else one chooses to call it. It is also unconstitutional. If one attends four years and gets a lot of C's in the process but has passed all subjects, he/she is entitled to graduate with a formal commencement like everyone else.
