Nearly a year ago, the students at Alpharetta High School elected Reuben Lack to be their student council president.

A month ago, he said, the school administration removed him because of an idea.

Earlier this year, Lack said he proposed changing the structure of the senior prom—eliminating the prom king and prom queen for more gender-neutral titles. He said he pitched it to be more accommodating to gay students at Alpharetta High. But he says the student council never debated it because faculty advisers intervened.
