...How is long hair going to distract a 4 year old in school? So he's in kindergarten, right? He's going to get distracted from coloring?

MrBob his hair isn't in his eyes, if it were I'm sure he'd complain. No school should force children or teens to cut their hair in manners which don't make them comfortable. When I was back in high school our Headmistress used to come everyday and threaten me with scissors because my fringe was "too long" when it actually wasn't.

Making people cut their hair against their will is in my opinion a violation of human rights.

Okay, long hair is supposed to distract him? Are they saying all the girls have boy style hair cuts? Or is this school just being sex-ist?

Know what a real is, one that actually impairs the child's learning?

Removing this child from the classroom over something as trivial as a hair style. Some rules simply aren't worth enforcing, this is one of them.

I don't really see a problem but its different in America. In England we have school uniforms and in some schools there is a strict dress code i.e no short skirts, no funky hairstyles etc but this is only because school (as you all probably know) is a bitch.. and as such the more similar everyone looks the less chance of one child being singled out for being different.. Basically that kid would probably get the crap kicked out of him for having long hair back in the day.. then again with the emo craze long hair is back in.. hmmm

elletheduck-"Anyone notice the hair is in this kid's eyes? THAT is a problem to learning. He can't see, he can't learn, so I can see the issue. His hair is right in style with all the emo kids my sister dates, so whatever.
My son can't have long hair. This is where it's my kid and I can make him do what I want, or turn Jackass on him and buzz spots into his head until its cut. I have the corner in my family for free spirited individual and he can't go there. To me my kid is the end of it, but I reserve the right to not give a poo and call your son with long hair a girl because I'm not paying attention."


I understand that you want to control your son but it is not a distraction. im a dude with long hair (about the same proportionally as the kid in in the video) and it is not at all distracting.

@alchemist18

Why? Because as the parent I establish rules, one of which is he has to have short hair?

His hair right now is his choice. The rules are I have to see eyes, collars and ears. He chooses to ignore the rules, there's a consequence to it, much like life.

Wow, wtf. What's wrong with having long hair? I'm pretty sure he isn't like playing with it during class or something, I don't see why he can't have long hair when it's not harming anybody o.O

loxen that is in no way a distraction and there is nothing wrong with raising a child challenge society for its attack on the individual...unless ur herding sheep.

Okay, I'll bite. If his hair is distracting why wouldn't a little girls long hair be distracting? Isn't this a great example of the double standards we used to take for granted. If it is clean, and it doesn't get in anyones way. I would tell the school to gth. Get a lawyer people, if his hair makes him happy than it is his right to wear it as long as he likes.

Pardon me if I'm a little confused about this lil state called Texas. I saw in the newspaper that they elected a GAY mayor. Yet, in my personal opinion, Texas is the most narrow-minded, religiously-brainwashed, unaccepting people in North America... Dont believe me, just watch this video again and again...

Yeah, go Texas. I completely agree; plus, that kid totally looks like a fruit cake with his hair like that. And something tells me that his parents are more involved with this "silent" rebellion more than is indicated in the video. You can just tell by the fact taht they are low lives.

Loxen, I truly feel sorry for you, you seek safety and security in the blanket of rules, you just need to remember that the blankets given to you by authority are laced with smallpox...

this is mental! my secondary school had a rule like this but never enforced it - can't believe they're doing that to a little kid.

and it's nout to do with it bein in texas, i live in the north of england and no of schools with similar rules. Texans aren't inherently more daft than anyone else, conservatives are.

And here's me thinking that my school's "no bald heads" policy was stupid...

I think we should stop all the bigotry towards Texas and Texans. As of June 2008 the population is 24,326,974 and I promise you we're not all a like.

Remember, Austin is one of the least conservative cities in the country.
