James Tate is one among many seniors that has a chance at a once in a life time chance... his prom. Most teenagers out there would rather stay at home or sit on the sidelines waiting for a date to come through or someone to ask for a dance while James did the only orignal thing any young man can do. He stepped up and asked a highschool girl to attend with him, but he did not only ask, he showed spark and stepped up to show it before the entire school. Sure the rest of us would get in HUGE trouble just as his headmaster is doing for him but let the kid have a chance. He is one that is choosing to go to the only big thing (besides highschool football) that other teens would have never gotten. I say let him do some good out at the school. Place the poor guy on trash duty or cleaning up trays in the lunchroom. Either way he will still be punished.
