Poll of the Day: Do You Think Schools Should Be Able to Punish for Breaking School Rules After Hours?

If you missed the story about the young man that was expelled for taking a girl to her prom at another school, you can read the full story here.  In short, the young man attends a Baptist school that has very strict rules when it comes to contact with the opposite sex.  One rule forbids (I’m not sure if the the rule “you can’t go to prom”, but it does forbid going to prom) students from attending prom.  The young man knew this was against the rules but went to the prom anyway.

What do you think abou this?  Vote below in today’s poll of the day!
