From the date to the dress, the rite of the prom has evolved from a simple affair in the high school gym to an elaborate evening at a posh hotel, and sometimes even a hotel room for the night. Yikes, how times have changed! Fortunately etiquette is not stagnant and evolves with our customs. The results? Contemporary prom etiquette dos and don'ts.
Recently, the principal of a large high school in Toronto announced, with the approval of the parent council, that all students attending this year's prom would be subject to a breathalyzer test. The belief that we set everything else aside when safety is our concern, means that we could find ourselves subject to the most egregious measures, so long as we believe that the intention of such measures is safety. A school prom is not just another party. It is a special rite of passage, like a graduation ceremony. What students wear, who they go with, what music they will dance to are all planned even years in advance. So telling students that if they don't want to be searched, they can just stay home is deeply unfair.
It is important to understand the significance of this experience for young people today. Prom is considered a rite of passage. After close to 15 years of school, prom not only marks the end of secondary school, but an opportunity to celebrate this milestone with friends. For students who choose not to pursue college or university, high school marks the end of their formal education.
