Texas Students Suspended for Refusing Haircuts


www.truthnews.us

Four Texas teens were suspended from school Tuesday for refusing to get their hair cut over the Christmas break, school officials said... “Our policy states that the hair (on male students) cannot extend beyond the collar in the back,” said Kevin Stanford, superintendent of the Kerens Independent School District.

I cannot believe that this is still an issue now adays. How fair is this dress code policy. Do you really think a hairstyle is disruptive. These students are staight A pupils and their haircuts do not seem diruptive IMO. I would have to file all kinds of compllaints if these were my kids. What happened to freedoms? I guess they do not extend to young people just like they are being taken away from adults each day.

So now they take away the rights of an individual to choose how they look. The U.S. really is going to Hell in a Handbasket fast.

I dare the school system to tell me either of my Sons have to cut thier hair!!

The article says the hair/dress code is to instill "respect for authority". But how can anyone respect authority when it makes such stupid rules as this? How dare they tell my kid how to wear his/her hair? That should be up to the kid and the parents.
How is short hair showing respect for authority? It just seems like mindless conformity to me.

I grew up in Texas - graduated HS in 89.

This is nothing new -- at all. When I was in public HS in Texas...boys couldnt have long hair below their collar - and we werent allowed to wear shorts or short skirts...and couldnt wear band tshirts.


Again, this is nothing new.

As a native Texan, I couldn't wait to see "Lubbock in my Rearview Mirror" a great song by one of my old school mates, Mac Davis, BTW
and no one should be surprised by the power hungry little people that administrate the public schools in a state that takes pride in having the most executions. Usually people of color.

Long hair was a problem when I went to school because kids would have lice. So this could also be a health issue.
It doesn't matter anyhow. Rules are rules. You can vote knew people in office to change them but until then you abide by them are face consequences.
If these boys were to want to join the military or police academy or most any job they would have to cut their hair,so why let them live in a fantasy world where you do what you want and dress anyway you like?
Just my opinion though. Just glad to live in a country where it can still be debated not arrested or killed for not abiding by the codes.
