Pushback Restores “Exclusive” Honors Night at Rhode Island Middle School

Pushback works. This story demonstrated clearly why excellence and liberalism cannot prevail in the same society:

EAST GREENWICH, R.I. –Citing concerns about the “exclusive nature” of the annual honors night at Archie R. Cole Middle School, school officials have decided to scrap the tradition.

Fortunately, people are still capable of being outraged that the very notion of achievement would be scrapped in favor of the all blades of grass must be cut to the same height mentality of the collectivist ruling class. Enough of a hullabaloo was raised that characteristically spineless educrats backed down:

Honors Night at Archie R. Cole Middle School is back on the table after school officials got a wave of feedback – much of it negative – in response to a decision to cancel the tradition citing concerns about it being too exclusive.

The lesson we can all learn from this school: unless you want to live in a world where there is no use exerting any effort because recognizing achievement would be “exclusive,” never stop pushing back against progressives.
