Ohio teen suspended for going to girlfriend’s prom
FINDLAY, Ohio — A northwest Ohio teenager has been suspended by his Christian school because he attended another high school’s prom.
Officials at Heritage Christian School in Findlay had warned 17-year-old Tyler Frost that he would be suspended and prohibited from attending graduation if he went to the public school dance over the weekend with his girlfriend.
Frost says he didn’t think going to the dance was wrong even though his fundamentalist Baptist school Ohio forbids dancing, rock music and hand-holding.
Frost didn’t go to school Monday. Instead, he and his girlfriend are heading to New York for a Tuesday morning TV interview.
The teen says he’s now getting Facebook and e-mail messages from around the world.
