    He should NOT have to cut his hair for anyone.. period.

    Dress codes are one thing, but come on this is taking it too far.

  3. David Yocum says:

    Cut the frickin’ hair, obey the rules like everyone else. Don’t like it?? HOME SCHOOL YOUR KID or try to find a private school that doesn’t have long hair as part of the dress code,

      Neanderthal thinking. No one has a right to tell a parent how long or short their childs hair style should be. This was dealt with in the 70’s, but it seems some people just want to keep throwing their personal views around like it is the law and absolute truth. If it doesn’t hurt anyone or interfere with school business in any way then it is not the schools business as to how long the kids hair is. Period.

    I agree totally with the host. Great job. The parents should tell the boy to cut his hair. datlow and Yokum comments are spot on.

    I am the grandmother of this boy. They say it is a dress code rule . When did hair become dress code. They need to do something about these boys with saggy pants and girls with long dangley earrings. At least he is a good student and makes good grades.Lots of people have said cut the hair. But it is a choice he needs to make. And the rules need to enforced all acroos the board.I will back him completely.

    Effing dress code nazis. I swear we have stopped worrying about the teaching kids and are trying to make them all think and look alike. The ones that don’t comply we stuff full of ritalin and zoloft till they can’t think and then take that mush and conform it to society. It is no wonder there are rampant suicides and school shootings. If this crap went on when I was in school I might have offed myself too.

    BTW, I went to high school with a guy whose hair was 7 foot long and they screamed about dress code till his lawyer showed up and claimed it was a part of his Muslim religion then it was fine.
