A Question 

I saw Saved today. It's pretty good. Basically, it's just your basic teen movie, but with the twist that it takes place at a Christian school and the "cool kids" - whom everyone wants to fit in with - are very religious. It's not that deep, but it does appropriately ridicule those who want to make gay people straight, and has a positive message about love and what Jesus would actually think were he around today.

But that's neither here nor there. I have a question. Why is it that in teen movies, our heroes are always given unfettered access to the stage and microphone during their senior prom? Why does the school administration feel it is appropriate to allow a select few students to use the night to work out some personal problems? And why is it that none of the other students ever seem to have a problem with this?
