Florida high school charging $200 for best seats at graduation

According to the Bradenton Herald, Manatee High School charged parents $200 for prime seating at the May 31 graduation ceremony at the school's Hawkins Stadium. The tickets sold out in four hours.

The cash-strapped Florida high school also announced it will charge seniors a $20 fee to attend this year's graduation in hopes of offsetting the cost of the ceremony.

Happened to catch this on bubblevision this morning...was off the grid in Ohio so had to stoop to watching that bunch as the only game in town.

Joe Kernan figured this was perfectly fine, and better than taxing everyone to fund the schools adequately.

Just another datapoint in how the antitax fanatics are turning "We The People" against eachother and taking the "united" out of United States.
