Pasco honor roll story gets national attention



San Antonio mom Beth Tillack seems to have hit a nerve when she criticized the rule that allowed her seventh-grade son to make his school's honor roll while earning a C and a D on his report card.

Her story, which broke in the Tampa Bay Times, first hit local television news. Then the national talk shows picked up the conversation.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan spent close to 10 minutes on the subject Friday morning. And Tillack appeared on Fox & Friends, where host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said Tillack was "fighting the good fight" and called her a "good mom." View the clip here. Then let us know your opinion on honor roll awards.
