Stupid administration is stupid. Absolutely no reason to punish a kid for an act of charity towards someone in need - especially one that will not disrupt the educational experience she or her classmates recieve. I think there are times when school administrators forget exactly what they are there to do: promote the educational experience of the children and promote them becoming decent people. Any monkey can mindlessly enforce policies and procedures. Whoever is in charge of making this decision to come down hard on the girl is in my opinion being paid more than they are worth and should apologize to the girl and then either take a salary cut or be terminated.

Page 33: no shaved heads. Pretty clear cut(get it?). I think it is time people atop being outraged all the time. School is public, but not one kids are required to attend. School has a special ruleset. Student ignores rules. Student is punished. People spaz out that a school enforces its rules.
Look at this statement.......
the dress code "was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school's students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted."
Explain a safety hazard resulting from a shaved head: "uniformity", in this application isn't that another way of say they discourage students from thinking as individuals?
A "non-distracting environment", now I am going to guess those kids and I means 100 % of the student body have seen thousands of shaved heads.
I think this young lady, Kamryn has learned that there are many stupid things and people that she will cross paths with in her life and this has been one of them. Last, if I knew the name of the school was Cap Rock I would have not applied.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
When you enroll you child in a charter or any private school you are agreeing to abide by their rules. As a parent you have to know what those are before committing there. I understand the girls intent was noble, and I would like to see the school support her, however, it is the schools choice. The parents can switch schools, they can try to convince other parents to switch schools. But thats about all they can do.
