Hello. I am a little curious why you believe public education systems are typically liberal controlled. While it tends to be true that many educators are part of left-leaning unions, and tend to be more liberal themselves... the districts are often run by school boards, and elected by the local populace. Given that this incident happened in Texas (and the stereotypes of Texan conservationism), I am hardly shocked that more restrictive and staid rules reign. While the teacher who got the child in trouble might not agree with the rule, their hands might be tied by what the district tells them to do in order to keep their job.
I honestly hope this mom takes the case to court. Her son's heritage reasons could open the door for any young boy to wear long hair by his choice, and not simply his tradition.
: First off this kid has some great looking hair!
: I'm sure most kids his age anywhere don't sport such magnificant manes.As far as with this school it surprises me knowing the public education system is basically liberal controlled in most districts but I guess there are always some exceptions. With all the freedom of expression, when it come personal vanity, I would think this issue would almost be put to bed by now.Whatever happens I hope his family fights to keep his hair.Cheers
