[POLL] Should a School Require a Breathalyzer Before Prom?
Princeton High School denied entry to students who declined to take a breathalyzer, sparking some approval, some objections. What do you think?
Students who attended Princeton High School's prom on May 24 had to agree to take a breath test prior to entry. Two students refused the voluntary test and were denied admission to prom, according to NJ.com.
This isn't the first time the school district has taken a hard line.
Last fall, administrators canceled the high school's homecoming dance, citing past incidents of inappropriate dancing and underage drinking. The school instead hosted a movie followed by an outdoor bonfire.
The U.S. Supreme Court has made two rulings related to this issue. In 1995's Vernonia School District v. Acton, the court said random drug testing of student athletes was legal. In 2002's Board of Education of Independent School District No. 92 of Pottawatomie County v. Earls
Pottawatomie County v. Earls, the court expanded the first decision to include students in competitive extracurricular activities.
