I find that just plain weird. Why the Hell would they not let him? I don't see any sense behind that at all.

I don't understand it, but at least he can still graduate. My graduation ceremony was super boring anyways. Still pathetic though.

as long as he's keeping up in school, what's the problem?
Just a sub-par guitar player..

Fuck those guys. Getting to walk at a graduation isn't a huge deal anyway, and the only thing this does is expose the school for the absolute gaping cunts they are.

Exactly.
My walk was fucked up anyways. Forgot to bring up the card they give you since none of us were even informed to do so, and I was one of the first to go up. I wasn't popular so no one clapped for me. That, on top of having literally none of my 5 or so achievements called out since I'd left the card, just made it more of a walk of shame than one to feel good about.

Personal experience aside, it's nothing more than what the school is getting their dicks in a knot about here: What is shown. Was he at school a lot? No. Did he do his work? Yes. Why was he gone? His mother was sick. However, to them the fact that he wasn't there a lot means nothing more than "Oh, it's not right for other kids since he was barely there". Who gives a shit? So goddamn stupid.

Same. How do you ban someone from walking?

Maybe he's in a wheelchair and he's learning to walk with the help of a physical therapist, but they've banned from even doing that for whatever reason. But why would his school have any say in that, and for what possible reason would they decree such a thing?

It was quite confusing until I read that it's banned from walking in graduation.

i dont think its a big deal, but just the idea is stupid on the schools part, if he didnt miss enough to the point where it affects his grades, why does whether he walk matter?

They are doing it because they lose money for everyday a kid doesn't show up for school.

Pretty much. It isn't a big deal. It's still pretty damn disrespectful.

Maybe it's a nice way of saying that someone broke his legs as punishment for something, just like mobsters out of a Martin Scorsese movie or something.

How is this a legitimate excuse to ban someone from walking during graduation?
I mean yeah the ceremony itself is kinda boring and long depending on how big your graduating class is, but its the principle of things.

I mean, it has to be obvious by now that the officials know whats going on with this kid at home, so why would it be neccessary to make this call? Noones gonna complain that its not 'fair' that he walks although he missed too many days.

Well I wish the best for his mother and him, atleast he seems to be taking the high road here
