Is there a legal issue for schools to place a age limit on who can attend prom?

Asked about 5 years ago - Euclid, OH

I was arguing with a friend who is older and dating a girl who is 18. I said schools have an age limit for prom attendees no matter where this is held. it is still a school function, governed by school policies. He said that was an age discrimination issue. Could you answer this for me. Thank You

    Answered . Age discrimination refers to an employment context in which a worker if fired and then replaced by another worker who is 40 years of age or younger. It does not apply in the situation you are asking about.
