Pa. Valedictorian Finishes Speech on 'Kimmel'

Peter Butera said the “authoritative attitude” of several administrators and teachers in the district (Wyoming Area High School in Luzerne County) “prevents students from truly developing as leaders.

A video shows the teen’s microphone being cut off at the school’s graduation ceremony:


Last night though, Jimmy Kimmel let Butera finish his speech on his late night show saying -
“The school pulled a Kanye on the kid. Whoever cut that mic off should not be in charge of education of any kind.”
