School bans pupil for extreme hairstyle

Have your say

Of course he should be excluded!! Nearly every school has a policy on hairstyles and his mother should have known better!
Hardly news though...

Oh dear, I thought difference and diversity were welcomed in this country. To be different is good surely because it embraces the culture of tolerance and understanding? Or have I got it seriously wrong?
Answers please, but they must be in joined up writing, oh! I think I've just fallen into the trap of being intolerant.
Just rushing out to get a haircut !!!

I have an expressive "extreme" hairstyle, and I'm disgusted at this. I am predicted 4 As for my A2 levels, and have a offer from the University of Cambridge. Hair does affect the education of students, but is just a way showing creativity and individuality.

For a start, how much did this rediculous hair-style cost. Lucky the family can afford it. I thought we were in difficult times with running our homes and clothing and feeding our families. Which barber actually did this, he must have known that it was NOT SUITABLE for a 12year schoolchild, or were they more interested in their profits? Back to school you parents who FINK they know it all!!!!!!!!!!!

As a mother to two boys myself, I would first of all question why his mother allowed him to have this hairstyle in the first place, and if it was his idea, I would ask what is he trying to express? I don't think he should be excluded from learning when clearly it is lack of guidance from his mother. He is only 12 years old and clearly the victim here.

This is just another ridiculous mess whih this school has caused once again. I am a sudent at the school and i have seen students wearing bright clothing and having "extreme" hairstyles. Depending on what sort of person you are depeds on the conditions you are allowed to attendschool in. It is clearly prejudice. How ever a student has thee hair, this does not affect learning or other students. The school wants to focus on getting better OFSTED reports before excluding students because this certainy won't help.

Perhaps the two people who've commented so far wouldn't have posted messages with spelling and grammatical errors if they spent more time concentrating on their education than daft haircuts.

Whilst I can accept that the young lad thinks his hairstyle is acceptable and as artwork it looks good, he has to conform to school rules. There is a time and place for these things. I guess he is under the age of sixteen and as such his parents are responsible for him. They must have read the school rules when he started as he they should have got a copy of them when he started. Rules are not made to be broken, but they are not as tough as they used to be when I was at Whitehaven Grammar School.

The School Isn't Setting A Good Reputation Instead A Bad One Becuase They Are Banning Freedom Of Expression!
Learning Doesn't Have Anything To Do With Hair Or Clothes But What You Know And Can Achieve, Schools Need To Focus On Behavior And Intelect Rather Than Apearance.
