High School graduation is something that all students and parents look forward to, but how much would you pay to watch your child walk across that stage in the high school gym? With state funding for high school’s steadily diminishing, one school in Florida is taking a unique approach to covering the cost of putting on its annual graduation.
Manatee High is not only charging students a $20 graduation fee to be a part of the ceremony, but also selling the best seats in the house to parents for $200 per row.
Parents are able to buy a row which seats about 15 people for $200, so about $13 per person, and these 10 available rows are the best rows in the house as far as seeing the stage and the kids walk across it. As crazy as this concept seems, the 10 rows sold out in about 4 hours.
