Miss America is asking a Pennsylvania school district to reconsider the punishment of a senior who asked her to prom during the question-and-answer portion of a school assembly.

The York Dispatch reported that Nina Davuluri posted a statement on the Miss America Organization's Facebook page saying she contacted Central York High School to ask officials to rethink the three-day in-school suspension issued to 18-year-old Patrick Farves.

Davuluri says her travel schedule will prevent her from attending the dance with Farves.

School officials knew Farves intended to ask her to prom and warned him not to do it. Fellow students cheered afterward, but Farves was suspended for misbehaving.

He apologized for disrupting Thursday's event. Davuluri was there to talk about the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies.

Critical thinking challenge: Why was Patricks question considered disruptive? Was it inappropriate, silly or sincere?

    Not enough information to tell this time but miss america apparently didn't think it was because he wanted attention. I'm sure she thinks highly of herself and that the boy thought she was smokin' hot.

    If the student asked during a specific time set for questions, he at least waited. The fact he got suspended is ridiculous. It may have been disruptive if he asked in the middle of her talking but i think it was a good question. What if she would have said yes? Would the school still suspend him?

    I dont see why he got suspended for that. She could just say no and that would be that. That guy has some courage for being able to ask Miss America to prom.

    I do no think that this kid should have gotten suspended for three school days. He only should have gotten a talking to because what he did wasn't even bad.

    I don't think that he should have been suspended for three days. He did go against a rule and he was warned not to ask her, but still. If he was to be punished, then it should have been for a day at most. He may have been a little disruptive and inappropriate, but if he really meant what he said, then it wasn't silly. I do think that it is kind of cute that he asked her to prom though.

    It was asked at the wrong time he could have did it in a different way. It was the wrong place to ask a qustio like that he coul.d have did it better.

    I think this is dumb he got suspended for asking her too prom. School are becoming more & more stupid on suspension. All there really doing is stopping a kid from getting an education.

    Honestly, the school kind of overreacted about Patrick's case. It's not that big of a deal to suspend somebody for. To me, it was more of a joke than an offense.
