I think that's a dumb rule. It's a graduation, it's supposed to be a happy time for all of those involved. Why mess around with that by imposing stupid rules like this?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Because if there was applause for every single graduate and they waited for that applause to die down before announcing the next person, it would take all day.

Huh? That doesn't make any sense. Celebrating is done at the end when the announcer presents the class, not after every graduate is announced. Graduation services have always worked this way, haven't they? :-?

Must be a fairly new development, I've never seen one work that way.

I have to admit that I was shocked by the ACLU response.

Dear student,

Through no fault of your own, you won't be getting a diploma. Sorry about that - we wish you the very best in your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
School Administration
