Kicking the Canned Speech Down the Road.

Here’s an item from Time that is worth sharing.  A graduate gave his own commencement speech rather than read the one he was directed to give by the school administration.  In retaliation, the school withheld his diploma, at least temporarily.

I was surprised that a school would do such a thing.  After all, the purpose is to put on display the product of 12 years of learning. But upon reflection, we all know that schools typically  reward compliance, rote memory and polly parrot answers.
