While one or more individuals maybe be “innocent bystanders” in their parents’ actions, others were involved. I don’t think that “innocent bystanders” should be penalized until them demonstrate that they can’t or won’t meet the standards. Those involved deserve anything they get. Graduates are probably “untouchable”.
