Bluffton public schools are discriminating against home-schooled children by not allowing them to be invited by a student that attends the school as a date to a dance. This is an after school event, paid for by the student activity and therefore should be open for a student to invite a non-student. I have never heard of any schools making a dance to where a student cannot bring a date from another school or a home-schooled student.
The practices and policies need to be changed. Home-schooled children should have every right to attend these functions if invited and paid for. I am not asking for my son to attend a class or be in a sport for the school, but to be allowed to attend a simple dance with his female friend. I would like to bring more attention to this type of discrimination in this area.
