    Should Public Schools Sponsor "Proms" and other events that have (arguably) no educational objective?

    What about "Band?" Does the public really need more tuba players?

    What about Football? How many adults need to have played football, or basketball, or baseball in Public School to prepare them for College or a Vocation? Do these team sports somehow translate into better industrial teams?

    And Last but not least: Cheerleaders? As much as it pains me to admit it, I really don't think the Public School really needs to train flexible nubile young girls in short skirts with skills of which are of dubious public use.:(

    For you, Samson:

    Polls like yours are the reason why the above quote resonated with us 25 years ago.

    Don't make it true. Please. :eusa_hand:

    You are just jealous because public schools are not promoting octosexuality along with heterosexuality and homosexuality

    Proms? Absolutely. With any luck perhaps our kids would learn some social graces instead of behaving like animals.

    Art and music should always be a part of a school curriculum because it can introduce our children to the many types of art forms and open a world to a general knowledge of music other than hip hop or rap. You never know when a general background knowledge of the finer things can keep your kid from putting himself in an embarrassing position around others.

    I'm OK with sports - but it should always be contingent on good, high grades and real effort to obtain a good educational background so they have something to fall back on when the sports injuries permanently sideline them.

    Cheerleaders? Why not? Somebody's got to help keep up school spirit!











    Is this because one of your slaves is about to reach dating age and you think it's time to pull out the shotgun to protect her from those beastly boys? Hmmm?

    I don't think schools need to bein the business of encouraging or enabling sexual activity between students.

    Everything on the list should be banned except banjo, which should be required.

    If Queers are allowed into Proms, I may need to protect all the slaves from Beastly Boys.

    It's not 'The Prom' anymore, it's 'Prom'. I don't get that . . . .

    Why ban it? The Prom was a fun time, who says it always has to be about learning something? Oh wait, at my prom I learned that if you drink too much you spend the entire night puking in the girl's bathroom . . . not me, Beth V.

    Proms without rules? No. Proms with rules and booted if you break them? Yep.
