Speaking before about 10 members of the press on the steps outside Shelton High School – the same steps where they dug with a firm “no” just two days before – Rector Dr. Beth Smith, said that after careful consideration, Tate could assist.

“I never thought that this decision would lead to international renown to take difficult and unpopular decisions every day,” Smith said.

Tate could not immediately be reached for comment. The bookends reistatement a frenzy of media a week that began with the news that Tate had been expelled from dancing after it has issued an in-school suspension on May 6. The suspension was caused by a violation for trespassing on school grounds before dawn that day, when Tate and some friends recorded pieces of cardboard to the outside of the school, with the letters spelling out the question “Sonali Rodrigues, will go to dance with me? “To surprise your date.

The school changed its decision, but it is unclear if administrators could legally have avoided the Tate to attend prom if you chose to fight the ban. As legislators worked quickly to pass a law that would help the cause of Tate, a lawyer from Branford, said Saturday that Patch strong precedent exists for the filing of precautionary measures to prevent bans dancing in similar cases.

The nationwide protest was expressed through the media and national television, as the Tate appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and shows today. High Shelton alum formed an alternative event to be held on June 4 “The James Tate Senior Prom 2011,” whose adherent’s reports include Pepsi, Red Bull and a local dealer of Hyundai.
