N.Y. high school holds prom on school night to thwart partying
One suburban New York high school plans to prevent excessive after-prom partying by requiring students to attend class the day after prom.
Students at Pearl River High who miss class the next day will be unable to make up academic work or to participate in athletics activities.
Needless to say, the new policy has caused friction. Some students have threatened to boycott the prom if it is not moved to Friday night. The school does not appear to be going to change its stance.
What do you think? Is this the right move to thwart after-prom partying? What do you do at your school? Does it work?
