Schools are now getting rid of the “valedictorian” reward for students.
We are living in a day in age where everyone gets a trophy and no student is allowed to be more superior than another, no matter how much hard work they’ve put in.
This is what liberals want, they want socialist values to start from adolescence and for everyone to be equal.

Schools are getting rid of their “valedictorian” titles over concerns that they create harmful competition, influence course selection and propagate misconceptions of large disparities in GPA because of differences in class rank.
Nearly half of American high schools do not display class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and many schools give out awards to students who obtain a certain grade-point average or higher instead of only the highest-scoring student, reported the Associated Press.
The NASSP stresses that schools should encourage cooperation instead of competition with regard to academic excellence.
Connor Carrow of Lancaster High School in New York wants his school to switch from honoring the top 10 students to the cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude system of honors typically adopted by colleges.
He advocated this switch well before placing 14th in his own graduating class.
