And why should important people have to stay home? If everyone is considerate of everyone else, there's no need. And you say 3 hours, but what about 4,5 or 6. If everyone does what these people did then that's what larger schools are facing.
You're creating false choices in an attempt to accommodate these types of people. I think it's much easier to have everyone respect those around them.
That's a classic strawman. No one is saying they shouldn't cheer. Just don't stop the ceremony. It's not the hard.It would be a damn shame if her mom and dad couldn't cheer for her on graduation day.

I have no desire to sit through a graduation ceremony with headphones on. And how you gonna provide headphones for thousands of people?
And once again people are saying its simply for cheering. It's not.
