School Dance and Pizza Party For Only High Achievers Upsets Some

 
School Dance and Pizza Party For Only High Achievers Upsets Some
Posted Wednesday, February 5th 2014 @ 7am

A middle school in Silver Spring, Maryland held a pizza party for their A students.  After that party, students with B's and C's joined the A students for an after-school dance.

Students with D's and F's were not allowed to attend.

According to a poll conducted by NBC Washington, over 80 percent of people have no problem with that.

But, that still leaves some people who take issue with the exclusion.  One parent tells NBC Washington, "My concern about how this could open up bullying situations is that children are competitive for grades and it could be a situation where a smarter student knows that another student didn't quite make the grade.  They could make them feel bad.  They could call them stupid."
