In Reply to: Another New School Year, Another School With Hair Rules [PIC] posted by JustCarol on August 24, 2017 at 11:01:29:
The school district should not have the right or authority to dictate what their students hair appearance should be, given that it does affect the student's out of school rights. They can demand that they wear certain clothes while in class, but that can be changed when they get home. Hair can't be put back on! This is not cultural or religious issue, but an constitutional issue, for both the student and the parents.
: The little boy is of Native American heritage, and has never had his hair cut. School district at first said they would make an exception for cultural/religious reasons, which the mother was submitting paperwork for - but now they are disallowing her son to attend until he gets his hair cut. She's not giving in, and plans on fighting this. As usual, the school releases a statement full of the usual malarkey about 'standards' and what not. It's 2017, and we're still dealing with backwards mentality. School is in Texas, which seems to be in the forefront of boys-with-long-hair haters running schools.
