About the picture with the story, I don't think there's any reason to believe that it's not the kid in question.
If it is him, then imo the teacher had more of a right to send him home. If they had been proper corn rows then that’s one thing, but he has just badly braded his (far to short) hair and put it in to squares. It's untidy, incomplete and imo would constitute being against a "dress code" as now doubt some where in there it says they have to look tidy and respectable. He looks neither tidy nor respectable.

I applaud the teacher. I'd get rid of baggy jeans ( I don't want to see your underwear, thank you very much)
oh yeah, and bring back uniforms to.

School is a place of learning, and a big lesson in life is the value of diversity. If Old Man Syrinx had his way, we wouldn't be granted our personal rights and freedoms until we were 18, right gramps?
Anyway, if you can't smoke pot during school then WHEN THE HELL CAN YOU SMOKE IT? Throw a dog a bone!

I'm sure the kids parents cringed when he left knowing that he didn't even have good corn rows but a 10 yr olds interpretation of them - but I doubt they were concerned that he would adopt this as a style for life and that it would just blow over -- as it would have if the prinicipal hadn't made an issue of it. Besides I am sure they have learned that you have to pick your battles and this wasn't it until their child was humiliated.
