They are still venting their anger outside of P.S. 132 in the Bronx.

Parents are angry that this month's graduation ceremony for 5th grade students has been cancelled.

The reason is simple according to administrators: bad behavior.

The decision to scrap the graduation was made by Anissa Chalmers, the P.S. 132 principal. She had no comment for us today.

Parents were summoned to an emergency meeting on Thursday. Many were planning a big celebration. They say they're unsatisfied that a smaller, stepping up ceremony will held for a number of well-behaved students.

Others say a few bad apples shouldn't tarnish the achievement of roughly 80 students.
