The fact that the school "upheld the policy as stated" tells me that the administrators of this school didn't learn a thing from this incident and the bad publicity it's garnered. At the very least, they should have indicated that they will be reviewing the policy to make allowances for such a possibility in the future.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
yea, justify banishing a student because their head was shaved to eliminate lice ... either that or pay up
[emphasis added by bubba to make this point]I think the rule being applied here is ridiculous, but it's also a private school. The parents should've understood what they were going into when they signed their kid up. If they wanted to shave the head, they should've checked with the school first in terms of a possible waiver with regards to the policy.
my understanding is the school is a charter school. paid for by taxpayers' dollars. don't see what is so 'private' about that
I didnt see if the parents knew ahead of time of the rule...did they? I mean, if they were curious, would they even have known where to look for it?
To me it seems hygiene-related but I'm guessing the school related it to gangs/skin heads?
Meh...some rules are meant to be broken.
