This has become quite the controversy at my school and I wanted to gather some thoughts. Our administration has decided to have the faculty wear their academic robes/hoods to commencement, and participate in the ceremony with the kids (walk them in, sit in the aisles behind the kids, etc). I loved the idea, but a number of teachers are strongly opposed, arguing that it takes away from the achievement of the kids and instead places unnecessary emphasis on the achievements of the faculty. Thoughts? What do your schools do, and why?
