  • No I don't think hair color should be included in a dress code. When I was in high school (and even after) I loved to change my hair color, and did it often. For the second half of my senior year, my hair was pink. It never effected my grades or my behavior.

  • I do not think so at all. I believe that sexually provocative clothing and dangerous jewelry should be eliminated, sure. But hair color is a form of personal expression I feel the schools should have no right to censor.

  • No I think of someone wants to express their self through their hair then have at it. Someones hair color doesn't affect their attitude, grades or behavior. If other students focus on what they are supposed to be doing other than the people around them there wouldn't be a problem. My hair is pink and I'll walk in the school all day and I'd be a hypocrite if I told my child he couldn't dye his hair

  • it shouldnt be included but it probably is somewhere

  • Personally, I'm almost anti-dress code. I think that some things should be restricted, like booty shorts and shirts that show off 2/3 of boob, or really vulgar language on a T-shirt, but I don't think that things like hair, makeup, type of clothing, etc. should be limited like it is at some schools.

  • that should be part of the dress code now too. I've seen some wild hair do's

  • I think it should since it can be a distraction. I know that one of the Public High Schools here allows it and the other does not.

  • Yes it should. It could (and probably is) be a distraction for other children. Most jobs have dress codes that include that rule, so its preparing them for that.
