Should School Let Nanny Go To The Prom?

Bryce Maine of Eufaula High School in Alabama knows that his grandmother had never been to the prom. So on his 18th birthday, Bryce asked his "Nanny" Catherine Maine to the senior prom as his date.

Nanny said yes - she so excited to be asked to the prom that she bought a new dress - but unfortunately the school said no. WTVM reported that the board of education "thinks that if Bryce takes his grandmother to prom then future students will do it as a joke and make the school a mockery."

Bryce's cousin made a post on Facebook, which went viral. After the social media uproar over the matter, the school's principal explained:

"Safety of students and staff is the first and most important of the many tasks of a school administrator. For the 10 years I have been high school principal, we have denied requests each year from students asking to bring older dates to prom.  We do not chance leaving any stone unturned when it comes to safety. Most high schools have an age limit for prom attendees."

What do you think? Should the school let Nanny go to the prom?

My kids' school wouldn't let most kids take their boyfriend or girlfriend to the prom. Only registered juniors and seniors at that high school can go. So, few actually go.
