To the Editors:
I don’t agree with the Board of Education’s decision to no longer publish the Wilton High School honor roll. Both my daughter and son graduated from WHS. Kids who work hard and achieve the GPA required for Honors and/or High Honors deserve to be recognized. Life is not fair. The sooner our kids learn that, the better. They also need to learn that hard work pays off. Unfortunately, it seems that in privileged communities like Wilton, we bend over backwards to coddle our kids and protect them from disappointment and failure. We’re doing them a disservice because we’re raising kids who don't know how to function well in the real world.
