Need a Parent's Signature to be Gay? - U.S. & World - Gays Need Permission for School Dances: "A principal who wants gay couples to get permission slips from their parents before they can attend school dances promised to re-evaluate the policy after protesters held four days of protests.
Copper Hills High School Principal Tom Worlton (search) issued the policy last month but agreed to revisit it Friday. He said he saw the policy as a way to alert the parents to the dangers their children might face."

Straight kids face a good many dangers by going to prom too. After one of my proms, a classmate got alcohol poisoning. Just how many young woman get pregnant on that night? As far as what happens at the actual dance, couldn't a young lady dance with a boy who is physically abusive? In fact, isn't that becoming more common: youth domestic violence? This is merely just a principal who neither understands nor accepts homosexuality, and has made a poor decision because of his lack of understanding.
