High school graduation: Have US schools become too strict?

Some minority students were not given diplomas because people cheered during the graduation ceremony. One of the students brings up an excellent point about not being able control everyone. For example, I don’t like Fred so i get a few people to cheer when his name is called and Fred can’t get his diploma.

That bothers me, but what bothers me even more are claims that when white students were cheered there was no penalty. 4 black students and 1 hispanic were punished in this school district near Chicago.

A school in Indianapolis actually had police remove parents who cheered for their kids during graduation. It seems a bit crazy to me.
