High School Charges Parents To Attend Graduation Ceremony [VIDEO]
Imagine going to your child's high school graduation. You want to sit up close. I mean, nobody ever really wants to sit in the back or behind a bunch of other people. Sometimes, it's hard enough just to get everyone in your family a ticket to attend high school graduations in some school districts in Western New York.
Now, imagine paying 200 bucks a ticket.
Manatee High School in Florida is stirring up quite the controversy.
While every senior is now required to pay a $20 fee to participate in the event, the school is also charging a $200 "premium" seating price. The extra cost pays for an entire bench near the end zone of Hawkins Stadium, where the ceremony will be held May 31. All ten rows have been sold out.
Is this too much? Did they take this too far? They say this is because the school is strapped for cash.
