So, none of this for arriving at prom. YouTube video

[Ed. – No limousine rentals. Kids can’t even drive to the venue in their own cars.  Must pay fee for bus.  Emphasis in original.]

According to Trenton radio station WKXW, officials at Lakeland Regional High School made a decision this year to ban students from driving to their prom or renting a limo. Instead, every student must pay $15 to be driven to the prom at Rockleigh Country Club on a chaperoned bus.

The decision was made “based on the concern over the safety of all our students and in providing equity for all students so that they all could enjoy a shared ‘prom experience’ despite socioeconomic status, and based on the success that other districts have demonstrated utilizing this practice,” the school’s superintendent, Hugh E. Beattie, said.

He doubled down on this socialist rhetoric during a brief interview with New York station WABC, saying, “We have students from various socioeconomic backgrounds, and we wanted to provide an even playing field for all students.”
