Let's hear it for E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y. A new rule passed by a New Jersey High School is getting mixed results from parents and students.
Hanover Park High School in the Garden State has instituted the policy that everyone who tries out for the cheerleading squad must make the team.
The new rule went into effect after a parent complained to school officials that their child didn't make the team after trying out last month.
When students and parents voiced their concerns over the new policy, the school's principal threatened to disband the entire program.
Is this another example of the "participation trophy" generation? Are there some team sports that some people just aren't qualified to play? Or should everyone be allowed to play because school should be open to everybody?
