    That's awful. I've heard of schools having multiple valedictorians because they all had perfect grades, but never when one had less. The silver lining is that this student will get a lot of positive PR.

    Everybody involved in this stupid decision should be fired, and barred from ever holding another administrative position again.

    That is awful.

    The school should and will get their asses kicked in court. And, hopefully some of those idiots will be shitcanned.

    If the roles were reversed everyone would be applauding the decision.

    I just look at it as white affirmative-action. :cool:

    it's an interesting case - and on it's face the school looks bad but the defense is reasonable.

    and i think that you decide which coursework is extra by allowing the student that put in the extra effort to fill in the required coursework with her best grades.

    that doesn't seem unreasonable to me. i do think the school might need to revisit it's policies though.

    This 'story' is the embodiment of double standards.
