Famous Graduation Quotations
"The need is increasing because standards are trickling down, and school is becoming more demanding. Graduation requirements have been increasing. Kindergarten is now what first grade used to be. It's the nature of the technological society in which we live."

"I'm very happy and proud for them because they've been model citizens. They keep our 100 percent graduation rate intact. But more than anything they're fine people.
