    Link: 10-Year-Old Boy Suspended For His Haircut - The thing is, this kid has had this haircut for 6 years. Sure it`s ridiculous looking, but it is worthy of a suspension?

    That teacher is an idiot. "Change your hairstyle which you`ve had for 6 years or you aren`t allowed in class!" Seriously? How are squiggles on someone`s head going to affect anyone`s education? If there`s anything too extreme here, it`s the teacher.

    Every adult was stupid in this story.

    School adults stupid for letting it go on so long and then suddenly having a problem with it.

    Parents were stupid to let the kid do this AND then to defend it.

    Lesson the kid did not get is that sometimes life sucks. sometimes there are people with authority you have to obay even if you don`t like it. Not all conformity is good, but some is.

    I hope the parents enjoy supporting this kid because I suspect, with what they teach him, they will have to for the rest of his life.

    I think the kids hairstyle is absolutely ridiculous, but how much of a distraction can it be if he`s been walking around like this for years?

    If the boy`s guardians are okay with him walking around with a head that looks like Mandelbrot`s nightmare, then so be it.

    It`s not like he has racial epithets shaved into his hair or anything that might REALLY be offensive or distracting.

    He`s a 10-Year-Old boy who likes his hair cut and The Man tells him he`s gotta conform to the short back and sides style of the 1940`s. What kind of teacher crushers the heart and creative mind of a child. This is why I hate school.

    So, the parents care more for the kids` hair than his schooling?

    Fire the parents, take the little brat to a foster home and burn down the school. That will fix all the bad decision making skills everyone involved seems to have.

    `The patterns shaved in his head are really very short and there is no way we could shave the whole of his head that length, particularly not in this cold weather.`

    80% of his hair is already that length, reasoning fail

    i would feel the same way. to not be able to express ones self is a huge step in the wrong direction.
    was he disrupting class? no
    was he about to shoot something BECAUSE HE`S EXTREME!!!!!!? no
    was he talking like some ghetto ass punk? maybe idk
    but the kids haircut looks pretty cool if i were the parents i would say up yours school, sue the school and put him in a different school that will appreciate a small amount of self expression

    and f uck you euro bitch im gonna kick your kid out of school for talking with a different accent i hope your kid eventually applies for dual citizenship in america

    This is why children don`t respect their schools or teachers, because they make huge deals over stupid stuff like a hair cut. Then when you actually do have something important to say they won`t listen.

    As far as I`m concerned you go to school to learn, teachers go to school to teach. How you have your hair is none of their concern. They should not dictate how you should and shouldn`t dress/have your hair or do to your body.

    So long as you are willing to learn, and what you choose to do with your body does not hurt anyone else I don`t see what the problem is.

    The fact is our lives are OUR lives, not the teachers lives. Outside of school they can`t tell us what we can and can`t do, and in school they should try to uphold the rules of that school but how you have your hair cut, something you do in your own time outside of school, is nothing to do with them.

    He`s allowed back if they agree he grows his hair? Bugger off.

    I agree with Bremir 100% :)
    School is for learning, and in general, how you have your hair styled or having piercings or tattoos etc...doesn`t really affect your ability to learn. But the school making a big deal out of nothing DOES affect students ability to learn. If it`s too "distracting" to the other students or the teachers, then maybe schools should just say that all kids have to shave their heads and wear matching uniforms. Make it all or nothing, but this nit-picking business has got to go. The way they are doing things now is causing too much distraction from the real job of the school and it`s too frustrating for parents and kids.

    It`s just hair. I was almost suspended in high school once for dying my hair pink because it was "unnatural". (It was actually supposed to be a bright red color, but didn`t turn out well.) But I made a convincing argument that if I couldn`t have "unnatural" hair, then every black girl with extensions or color worked into their hair had to be suspended too. They weren`t willing to do that and I wasn`t suspended. It`s JUST HAIR!!!

    I work in a school. I tend to think that some freedom should be allowed with hairstyle, clothing. etc. However, I think anything that is done in direct defiance of rules, or is a distraction to the class should not be tolerated.

    I would be out of a job if the school could enforce structure all the time though.
