Incredulity Abounds

I can’t believe what I just read. Evidently Jenn’s tween son is suffering an on-campus suspension for hair violations.

Yes, you read it right. Hair violations. As a child of the late 60′s/early 70′s, it amazes me that this is still an issue in schools. Forget their butts hanging out of pants, folks. Just let their hair get in their eyes and what you have is pure evil.

Hey, and kudos to Jenn for pushing back.

Don’t you all feel better knowing that our schools are protecting the kids from becoming long-haired hippie freaks? I’m sure none of us care about the effort and resources being wasted on this while we lag behind the rest of the world in science and math achievements.

    I have totally decided that the squeaky wheel (In your face parent) is the one who gets more respect and her son gets to have hair that is NOT horrific and going to make him a drug addicted, thief with violent tendencies. *sigh*

    We have come to an agreement. Don’t mess with my kid and I won’t go crazy on you!

    Jenn, it occurred to me after writing this that the whole policy discriminates. Are they suspending GIRLS? I’ll bet not.

    Keep being squeaky — I don’t know about the respect part but you’ll definitely command attention and in the end, maybe a more reasonable approach to a stupid policy.
