    PRAGUE, Okla.– There’s a bit of diploma drama going on between a local high school and that school’s valedictorian.
    David Nootbaar is furious his daughter’s school is keeping her diploma.
    He says, “She has worked so hard to stay at the top of her class and this is not right.”
    Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Prague High School in May and was named valedictorian.
    When tasked with writing the graduation speech, her dad says she got her inspiration from the movie “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.”
    Nootbaar says, “Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her what do you want to do and she said ‘How the h*** do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.”
    He says in the written script she gave to the school she said “heck,” but in the moment she said h*** instead.
    Nootbaar says the audience laughed, she finished her speech to warm applause and didn’t know there was a problem.
    That was until she went to pick up the real certificate this week.
    “We went to the office and asked for the diploma and the principal said ‘Your diploma is right here but you’re not getting it. Close the door we have a problem,” says Nootbaar.
    He says the principal told Kaitlin she would have to write an apology letter before he would release the diploma.
    A move dad believes is illegal.
    “She earned that diploma she completed all the state curriculum. In four years she has never made a B. She got straight A’s and had a 4.0 the whole way through.”
    Kaitlin starts college in a few days on a full scholarship, making the administrators’ decision even more appalling to her family.
    We tried to get the school’s side of the story.
    Superintendent Dr. Riick Martin gave us this statement: “This matter is confidential and we can not publicly say anything about it .”
    Kaitlin doesn’t plan on writing an apology letter because she doesn’t feel she did anything wrong.
    Her family supports that choice.

    I didn't even know the word "hell" was offensive before
    seriously, it's just as "offensive" as saying crap.

    Denying a high school diploma to someone, something that is pretty much essential for getting 99% of jobs, just because they said hell? What the hell is this school thinking?

    I don't understand how any word can be considered bad. It's just a fucking word. It's meaning only exists depending on who you talk to. There is no such thing as a word that is evil and deserves to be censored till the end of time because its a "bad" word. Words change meaning a lot, and the idea of taboo words is stupid in my opinion. A good example is the word bastard. It didn't used to be a bad word, all it meant was that the child (the bastard) was born while his parents were not married.

       But then I remembered, Christians/soccermoms. (NOTE: I am not saying ALL CHRISTIANS/SOCCERMOMS are the people who are uberly offended by stupid words, etc etc. It was a small joke (that holds some truth.))

    My class valedictorian made fun of the fact that our school is too poor to afford Physics textbooks in the first two sentences of his speech, and he was able to get his diploma.

    This is when you sue the school board and get what you want through your lawyer, plus a little cash money to help with that college fund.

    Really it's a blessing in disguise.

    My french teacher told our class how to swear at people in french.
    And used the french word for shit all the time.

    The valedictorians at my graduation openly made fun of the school, in front of all the staff and parents and kids. They even threw in a "hell" and "bastard" here and there. Everyone found it funny.

    Hell, my German teacher taught us how to swear in German and jokingly insulted us sometimes.

    I can see the problem if she handed in her speech and went completely off-topic, but for just one "curse" i(if you can call it that), this is ridiculous.

    I can't help but cringe when I think of all the poor highschoolers in the audience that have never been exposed to language as harsh as h-e-double-hockey-sticks, they're going to be scarred for the rest of their lives for sure

    It's like the lowest tier of bad words. Just barely above "substitutes" for more significant bad words like "darn" or "crud".

    How is hell still a bad word, not even in middleschool it's considered one. I remember back in grade 8 we made our teach yell out "fuck" about 3 times.

    What confuses me further that in my high school at least pretty much every kid there say pretty much every profanity available, and the teachers only really act if they talk loudly.

    But "hell" isn't even close to a profanity worth refusal to give a diploma.
    I might understand if she said like something racist, but she didn't.
    And am sure some of my teachers have said hell before.

    I mean hell goes in the like Z list profanities like crap or darn or dang. Its silly really.

    I don't see what the big deal is. The use of the word "hell" obviously proves her four years of high school did absolutely nothing and she should be thankful they just held it instead of shredding it. All the passed exams and stacks of homework in the world does not excuse such savage behavior. Her father should be ashamed and she should live in shame with nothing to show for her time spent in school.
