You are NOT Special – Best Graduation Speech

The speaker is David McCullough, Jr., a teacher at Wellesley High School and son of the wonderful biograher.  He sure has his father’s way with words!  LTG

This speech was amazing! One of my all time pet peeves has been the whole “everyone gets a blue ribbon so nobody has to be a loser” crapola they spew in schools these last twenty – thirty years or so. You’re not special until you make yourself special….or not. I’m sending this YouTube link to everyone I know. Thank you LTG!

Every single child and parent in America should take this speech to heart. I have taught high school for 28 years now, and I can count on one hand the number of truly special kids in my room. Teens today have a vastly amped up self-esteem that is not based on reality. Until this changes, American education will never improve. Mediocrity is the new norm, and teens today have bought into it.
