This is just ridiculous. Like pointed out above, graduating is a once in a life-time event, and for someone to say you cant participate because of the
music you listen to, or dancing, is pure prejudice.
But, on the other hand, he is attending a CHRISTIAN school, which is (at least her in cali, not sure about ohio) a private organization, they are not
chartered by the state, and I believe only have to meet the states educational criteria for graduation. Because it is a private christian school, they
are allowed to discriminate to an extent, like in the article, especially seeing how he and his parents signed contracts. That being said, I believe
the christian school is well within its rights to suspend him for breech of contract.
Im not saying its right at all, but if its that big of a deal for this kid, he should get out of the private school and enroll in the public school
system where the church cant control your life.
