A Connecticut high school headmaster has reversed her decision to ban a student from the prom after he broke school rules by hanging his prospective date’s invitation at the school entrance.
Two state lawmakers say they are introducing legislation that would allow James Tate, a Shelton high school teenager, to attend his prom. He was barred from the dance after he asked a girl to prom by posting an invitation in big cardboard letters in the side of the school.
Mayor Mark Lauretti on Wednesday said he thinks that the case may need another look.
Shelton High School senior James Tate and two friends posted 12-inch tall cardboard letters outside the school’s main entrance, where everyone would see them going in last Friday morning.
