 i swear school admins are off their rocker these days!!

http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/kindergarten-boy-suspended-for-his--distracting--mohawk-182303876.html

a kindergartener was suspended because of his mohawk, his very adorable, short mohawk!!  so glad our school isn't like that!  we have boys that have crazy designs shaved into their heads.  one boy in my son's kindergarten class came back to school on monday with a big batman symbol on the back of his head.  not something i'd let my son do but heh, it's only hair!  girls have multiple colored streaks in their hair.  it's all in fun & a way for them to express themselves.  if it were my child i'd sure be raising a fuss!  & i'm sorry but if a teacher can't keep the class under control because of someone's haircut then they i think there is more of an issue going on then just a child's hair!

The kid broke the rules. It may be a "silly" rule, but it's a rule nonetheless. I don't adore every rule at my kids' schools but I follow them!

The only thing ridiculous about this is the ludicrous sense of entitlement people have these days.

That's a ridiculous stupid rule. It's only hair on a 5 year old!!! I've done the Mohawk on my son, I did a star shaved on his head once, it lasted a couple of weeks til his hair grew back.
I don't understand this kind of rules.

Ditto. A lot of people think seat belt rules are dumb but it you don't follow them, you get a ticket.

They should take it up with the school board and try to change it.

My daughter goes to private school and they have a very strict dress/appearance code. I knew that going in because i read and signed the rules the school gives out. Knowing the rules, I would never allow my child to go to school dressed in something that would get her into trouble.

If the parents knew the school rules yet allowed the kid to do it anyway,I blame the parents. Why set your kid up like that?

 yes, but do you consider the haircut a distraction.  like the grandmother stated, it's not like the punk mohawks of the past, it's not impeding anyones vision (the only guidleline we had regarding hair when i was in school).  children get distracted easily.  i've seen a whole class "ohhing & ahhing" over a classmates new light-up watch, not to mention when the light-up shoes first came out.  should those children be suspended over having clothing that was distracting?  would they have been at that school?

It doesn't matter(not an issue) if i think certain haircuts/styles are distracting or not. I signed a contract with the school stating I read the rules and agree to abide by the them. If I don't like the rules I have the choice to enroll in a different school.
