"Actually, it's really not. It's based on the idea that government not make laws to favor or establish the practice of one religion over all others."
No , Actually you have it Wrong . No Church or Religion Shall Influence Govermental Policy with Any Legal Authority in the United States . Americans have a Right to Practice their Faith Freely , but it cannot interfere with the Laws of the State .

On this one, I would have to wonder what the reason was for the policy change? Was it because of the new hipster facial hair fad that seems to favor scruffy, scraggly, ill-kempt beards, and this guy got caught in the cross fire?
And if so, I applaud (sarc intended) the school district for their equal opportunity religious discrimination.
I think some flexibility should have been shown for genuinely religious facial hair as opposed to hipster facial rags.
