    From my hometown -- Christian school principal forbids senior from going to the public school's prom because rock music is bad! If he goes, he'll be suspended!

    No word on if the students from the school are allowed to go to wedding receptions, pro sports events, grocery stores, or anywhere else rock music might be played. Oh, and don't forget the hand holding. Someone might hold hands at the prom, too!

    Sorry, a private school can have its policies and is entitled to enforce them. Assuming he & his parents knew the rules & enrolled anyway, it's their ball & their court. I feel bad for them that publicizing it & making them seem nuts, but some religious schools are just different than what most people are used to and are allowed to be.

    So anything not on that list (crack, anal, huffing) is a thumbs up?

    Of course they can, but that doesn't mean their absurd policies can't be publicly ridiculed.

    Of course, the public school requires students from other schools to submit permission slips from their school's principal in order to attend the prom. And this student received that permission slip from his principal ...

    What? Permission slip from the principal to attend a prom? WTF?

    OK, had only read your excerpt - I agree he shouldn't have signed if he didn't want him to go.

    I still don't understand why one school requires a permission slip from the other school's principal.

    I don't think the school should be able to dictate what they do when they are not at school.

    Why not?

    Because you're not under their supervision, not on their grounds, and thus not under their control. It should be up to the child's parents, and no one else.
