Imagine the outrage if a girl child was given detention because she had cut her hair short and the rule was girls must have long hair.
If she had an extreme cut then it would be same.... boys can have long hair, they just need to wear it tied back.
School policy is clear, no rats tail, kid has one... parenting fail for not following school rules.
Ands whats with 'kid refuses to go to school for 2 weeks' comment from parents.... far out, who is the parent ?
Just ridiculous example of an 'issue', I suspect there would be a whole lot more poor examples at that school too given it feels the need to have to state those sorts of rules.
