A middle school in Rhode Island decided to cancel an Honors Night after complaints it was "too exclusive."

The principal of Archie Cole Middle School sent out an email this weekend saying it would, instead, recognize those honor students during a team-based ceremony.

Well, that did not go over too well with parents. Some students even spoke out saying there was little reason to keep working as hard as they have been without any reward.

After much backlash, the Principal changed her mind. She says they will schedule a celebration for Honors student sometime next month.
