Tired of his students treating prom like a drunken orgy night, the Principal of a Catholic School wrote a letter to the parents of the students.
"It is not primarily the sex/booze/drugs that surround this event, as problematic as they might be; it is rather the flaunting of affluence, assuming exaggerated expenses, a pursuit of vanity for vanity's sake -- in a word, financial decadence," Hoagland said, fed up with what he called the "bacchanalian aspects."
"Each year it gets worse -- becomes more exaggerated, more expensive, more emotionally traumatic," he said.
"We are withdrawing from the battle and allowing the parents full responsibility. [Kellenberg] is willing to sponsor a prom, but not an orgy."
Haha, I am glad that somebody somewhere is willing to stand up and say that. I believe the "popular" culture is spinning out of control these days in schools, mainly because each year they try to out do the year before it.
