    This reminds me of a movie about 20 years ago where kids in a mid-west town weren't allowed to dance. I guess it wasn't fiction.
    It sounds a little Draconian to me.

    Ohio Christian school tells student to skip prom - Yahoo! News

    NDLAY, Ohio – A student at a fundamentalist Baptist school that forbids dancing, rock music, hand-holding and kissing will be suspended if he takes his girlfriend to her public high school prom, his principal said.

    Despite the warning, 17-year-old Tyler Frost, who has never been to a dance before, said he plans to attend Findlay High School's prom Saturday.

    Frost, a senior at Heritage Christian School in northwest Ohio, agreed to the school's rules when he signed a statement of cooperation at the beginning of the year, principal Tim England said.

    The teen, who is scheduled to receive his diploma May 24, would be suspended from classes and receive an "incomplete" on remaining assignments, England said. Frost also would not be permitted to attend graduation but would get a diploma once he completes final exams. If Frost is involved with alcohol or sex at the prom, he will be expelled, England said....

    I think its time to pull the school's certification because anyone dumb enough to think a contract signed by a minor is valid has no right to be in control of the development of young minds.

    It is his choice to attend the private school and abide by the rules. It is also his choice to attend the prom if he chooses. .. both have consequences that he is aware of.... most folks face these types of decisions daily.

    I had my first orgasm in the coat room of the old Morse School in Cambridge, I was in the seventh grade, a girl in the 8th grade gave me a hand job, I thought she broke something in my gall bladder, I asked her where she learned how to do that and she said her father taught her. I don't believe they were baptists, I could be wrong.

    While we fight the Taliban in the suburbs of the Pakistani capital, maybe we should worry our Taliban around Cincinnatti!

    That being said, the kid signed the screwball contract. He's got to face the consequences.

    I can see this being enforced on the Christian schools property (no dancing holding hands etc.) but once hes off campus how can the rules still applie is the point.

    Evidently he signed a behavior contract.

    Kevin Faulk was caught with pot during an offseason, 800 miles away from Foxboro - - he got punished.

    Cheerleaders who pose for Playboy away from the team's facilities lose their jobs all the time.

    The school's rules are ludicrous and mideival, but if the kid signed a contract, he signed a contract.

    I wonder if smiling is OK to these folks.

    If he signed a contract like that he shouldn't be suspended he should be flogged in public on school grounds, Taliban style.
