I much appreciate the video. I think it IS relevant inasmuch as it
raises the whole issue of "pre-approval" of valedictorian's speeches.
The video rightly suggests that such a practice is itself dubious. I
share Bob Nagel's view that valedictorians should be allowed to say
anything and everything, inasmuch as they won the right to present a
speech on the basis of academic achievement alone. BUT, if a district
asks to listen to speeches in advance, as apparently was the case, and
she did a "bait-and-switch," I find it more understandable that the
school district would be irate, even if they were a bit ham-handed in
refusing to give her the diploma.
