Anti-Orgies Principal cancels prom

This principal concluded since his students were having too much fun at their proms- Fun that he can't have himself- has decided to cancel the school's prom and narc on his students. Bastard. Makes that whole "Your Principal is your Pal" crap really seem like..ehh...crap. Crap, my writing in this post sucks.

Interesting. As much as I enjoy hedinism, I have to agree with this action. BTW... it wasn't to orgies that killed it. It was the expense.

When I was in High School in the US, I never went to the prom. Neither did a lot of other people I knew. We could not afford it. How was a 17 year old kid suppose to come up with $800 for one night? It was insane.

Prom Night has evolved into an event that only the children of parents with more money than brains can afford.

Unless every student of the school can be reasonable assured that they will be able to attend and participate, then the school has no reason to sponsor, condon, or produce such an event.

Unlike the airlines, schools shouldn't have first-class and coach-class.

I agree with you. Proms have really evolved into elaborate affairs that many high school seniors cannot afford. While researching for a history of prom article I was writing, I found that most proms before the 1950s were usually just senior class dances in the high school gym. You can check out the article here if you are interested in how prom has evolved from the late 19th century.
