But then her address took a sharp turn when she called out the school's administrators and teachers for being negligent and failing to do their jobs.

There's a time and place for everything, and the graduation ceremony wasn't it.

The truth hurts. To those kids it was a once in a lifetime event. To the faculty, once a year. I have zero sympathy for those who are skating by doing substandard work and thinking they deserve praise. At least this young lady understands what it takes in the real world to succeed.

Where else would she get the attention that it deserved. Should it be kept in-house and quiet. Obviously her classmates knew where she was coming from and she thanked the people she felt had helped her attain her status as valedictorian.

I heard a bit of this yesterday. It struck me as incredibly poor taste, bad judgment. Just ill-considered whining. But that's a gentler interpretation. That was a setting in which none of the accused could address the accusation, for one thing. Does anyone remember Mao's Red Guards? Young people terrorizing the country on his behalf? I remember scenes where the accused were sitting on a stage, hands bound behind them, while youthful fanatics would scream the condemnations to the crowd. Then the accused would be executed. (That part wasn't filmed as I recall.) This girl didn't dream up this public humiliation all by herself. I don't care whether there was substance to her accusations. Her method was unjust and ominous.

I agree a commencement ceremony is neither the time nor the place. But this is a public school, right? There are very few ways to hold poor performing public school faculty accountable. Even ones who are relieved of job duties are paid for years to do nothing. I see this student much like I view Trump - a disrupter. When tradition and decorum serve only to preserve a corrupt status quo, at some point we must stir things up.

Great that the young student used the graduation for letting them all know. Sorry #1, it was a perfect occasion! Everyone assembled and parents can now investigate this outrage which otherwise would be brushed under the carpet. Many teachers leave a lot to be desired and they should long have been thrown out. Their only reason for being a teacher is the pension and a lot of vacation!

Sounds like another spoiled rotten teeny bopper to me. She made the commencement all about herself and she sounds a lot like AOC . Did she turn in the regularly drunk teacher? Did she give the info to the school paper? Did she tell her parents about the teacher? Did she speak to the police? Did she contact the local newspaper? Same goes for the counselor and admin. Sounds childish and vindictive to me.

It took my HS guidance counselor years to get my name & gender correct, happened during my last interview with her, just before graduation. Alcoholism was a problem with one of the specialty teachers at my son's school. The teacher showed up - late, drunk and ready for sleep. Fellow teachers covered for him/her many years so that the offender could retire with a good pension.

I love this. My son went to what was considered a great high school in California and the incompetence and arrogance of the staff and teachers was shocking. I knew I was going to be in permanent defensive mode when the registrar gave me major attitude when I was registering my son. It got worse. The counselors were never available and couldn't be bothered. My son had a major medical issue and dealing with them and 80% of the teachers was a nightmare. You can't talk to these people because even during their office hours they don't take calls or even bother with their voicemail. You can't email them because they assume every parent is a psycho so they block emails. Even stalking them after school doesn't work because they're driving away before the kids get off campus. The only way to get anything done is to call the district and threaten a lawsuit. The schools don't serve the students, they serve themselves. The teachers think they're gods and can do no wrong and the administrators cover for them. Private schools in California aren't much better. There's this disturbing culture that we must respect teachers. Show me one I can respect and I'd be happy to. My experience is that they are nothing but whiny clock watchers who can never make enough money not educating our kids.

There's always home schooling. My school did not have a counselor. Most teachers are good, but there are others that should be nowhere near students. Know of two instances where parents had children that were mildly autistic, and dealing with schools was 'unpleasant'. Drunk teachers should not be tolerated. The teachers will put in as much effort as the students do. Ultimately its up to the student. Sounds like the valedictorian learned a life lesson.

San Ysidro is where the illegals roll in. The iron grip of teachers unions combined with the lawlessness of the border pretty well give you a whiff of the flavor of the place, via the speech.

The counselor and the principal told my son that he was not college material. My son thought they were right. Wife and I implemented 7 year plan for my son to graduate from college. On the sixth year he graduated and I sent a copy of his BA certificate to his H.S. counselor and principal. Today, son works for an international hotel in the Far East. If he followed through with the counselor's advice, my son would be flipping hamburgers and demonstrating for an hourly wage increase.

When I was in high school, my counselor was of the mind that women should be barefoot and pregnant and stay at home. MY calling was architecture, and he KNEW this. Instead of the maths and science courses that I would need for college, he insisted that I take child development, fiber arts and home ec / sewing courses. I was not told about any scholarships that I might have been eligible for, nor was I given any college recommendations. When I started college, I was completely unprepared for the courses and requirements needed to succeed. I was immediately behind my classmates and left to play catch up with information that would have been better to have learned in high school. In the end, I succeeded in spite of my HS counselor, but it was more difficult than it needed to be. This student obviously felt that she didn't have a voice, that her concerns were not being heard. I cannot find fault with her means of getting her message out. At least she has now been heard.

It was a lousy thing to do and very poor judgement. Try that in the real world and see how many jobs you get. The incompetent are protected by unions or employment contracts and cannot be touched or they would have been already. I work with one just like that. Management just tells us to not give him any important jobs and wait him out till retirement. Meanwhile, she has made public accusations that may cost her all her college money plus. Not smart.

Having survived the Fairfax County public school system of the late '60's and early '70's, I for one applaud this young woman for speaking up. By her account, she attempted to use the tools that the system claimed to have in place, with little or no support from most of the public school employees (teachers and support staff) going "through channels". Particularly egregious are the staff who neglected her ("counselor" and office staff). I attended High School, we'll just say outside of Reston (when it was still "rural"), and found that I was left to flounder, with little or no guidance or support from staff. As for my parents, they were "absentee", Dad working 14+ hour days and weekends (Pentagon), Mom enjoying the Washington "scene"...all known to the staff. Most sad was my "guidance counselor", who advised me as a Junior, that my best bet was to drop out of school, and try and find something. Well Mrs. "C", I graduated despite your "guidance", and went on to a career in Army Intelligence, and on to Army Aviation and have made a career of in that field to this day. I attended college, while working and hold a BS degree, no thanks to you or many others who failed to recognize what I needed by way of support...I did it myself, on my own. One regret that I have was when I returned to my Alma Mater, in uniform as an Army Officer to visit my "counselor" to thank her for nothing, I missed her by about a year (as I understand it) as she retired....that had to be a plus for future bright students who were bored at school and fell through the cracks.

Rather, the current modifier “Third World” has come to transcend geography, politics, and ethnicity. It simply denotes poor failed states all over the globe of all races and religions. Third World symptomologies are predictably corrupt government, unequal or nonexistent applicability of the law, two rather than three classes, and the return of medieval diseases
