A Newton North High School senior was banned from prom after he wrote pro-democracy messages while on a study abroad trip.
Henry DeGroot said he wrote the messages in the notebook of a Chinese student at a school near Beijing, the Boston Globe reported.
DeGroot said he wrote the following messages:
- "Democracy is for cool kids"
- "Don’t believe the lies your school and government tell you"
- "It’s right to rebel”
