    The OP is talking about whether teachers should be able to tell students what kind of hairstyles they can have. You wore your hair the way you wanted to - why can't they?

    What's good for the goose, and all that.
    Different times, different attitudes. I paid for my rebellious ways. Kids today should too. Its a lifes lesson.

    Do you even have kids?

    "Well in my day, we didn't wear our hair wild, so you'd better not! It's a life lesson!"

    Dude, kids are going to roll their eyes at you and tell you they don't want to hear any, "I had to walk to school, both ways, uphill" stories.

    Public schools.
    Calling it "dictate" is pretty heavy handed.

    Overall, I suppose within reason they should. I mean, it could be a legitimate safety issue if someone grew their hair out so long that it dragged six feet behind them.

    Then they can face the wrath of teachers and coaches. Like I did. Dude.

    That, or something else that can be very offensive.

    There is almost always a grey area to any similar question.

    It makes a lot of difference. You can't very well give advice to or about kids, if you don't have any. I mean, you can. Child psychologists do it all the time. But someone speaking of behaviors in children carry a lot more weight if they actually know what they are talking about, and having kids is the only true way that you can understand.

    You forget, people like me. Maybe me specifically depending on your childs career path. Are the ones sitting across the desk interviewing him or her.
    Making judgements on "childhood rebellions" that may carry over to adult hood. It happens a lot with people who just cant leave their highschool high rebellious ways behind and conform to society somewhat enough to enter the work place.
    Oh, and my child is the COO of the company he and his cousin started. Owns his own home, truck, college educated, makes the most of his opportunities.
    Asks for and gives no quarter.
    And before you make a snide remark, no he don't mow lawns and I can garrantee he makes more than you and I combined.

    You sit at a desk? I thought you said you were a cop.

    As far as rebellions carrying over into adulthood, this thread is about kids. It's not about adults. It's about kids who have off the wall hairstyles. Most of us had off the wall hairstyles. I did. I was a child of the 70s and 80s, so I had a mullet, and at one time, had a rat tail that went down to my waist. I grew out of that ****, though, and am now a responsible adult. As most kids do.

    And congrats on your son. Sounds like he grew up well. Good thing, being a COO of his own company, that he never had an off the wall hairstyle when he was a child in school. He might be in jail today instead of owning his own company.
