Teen banned from graduation for attending prom at girlfriend’s school

A student and his parents signed a contract that said “If you go to our school, you can’t do the following:” amongst which was dancing with members of the opposite gender. (Also hand-holding and rock music.)

He went to his girlfriend’s prom with a limousine rental and had a great time. He’s not graduating with his class now. It’s not the end of the world for him. He’s getting his diploma, after all. He is only sitting out from the marching and the silly hats.

I can’t say I feel sorry for him. It’s his own damn fault for attending a school with stupid oppressive rules. Now his dad is trying to defend him saying the rules don’t apply outside of school. When else would they apply? You can’t tell me that he’s been sending checks to this place and never bothered to read the rule book. Trust me, a school like this has a rule book and they make many, many copies of it.

Yeah, it’s a dumb rule. He knew what the consequences were for breaking that rule. If he and his family find such rules to be silly or unfair, perhaps they should’ve spent thousands of dollars on an education at some other fine private school.

You know, I have a feeling that for all his trouble, he didn’t even score on prom night.

Alright, he gets a little sympathy from me.
