Too far?

Spend a little time watching videos of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students at graduation ceremonies, or, to save time, just take my word for it, but it's time to call a halt to these events. (Valerie Stauss at The Answer Sheet)

Have we gone too far in our attempts to celebrate the successes of children? Or are rites of passage, even graduation from pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, important events which should be marked by ritual?

Thoughts?
