Is Honor Roll Worth Honoring?

I was at a middle school awards ceremony today and saw something fairly astonishing. Nearly the entire student body was on the honor roll. I mean 90% at least.

Now, either they are all talented students or something is awry. Grade inflation, lower standards, too much extra credit…what is the cause? It makes me wonder if anyone and everyone can do it, is it worth honoring?
