FORT BEND COUNTY (KTRK) — The parents of a kindergartener in Fort Bend County are fighting for his right to have long hair in school. They say it’s about freedom of religion. The Needville Independent School District says it needs proof. http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=6239670
I’m so sick of this fight. It shouldn’t be the role of the state to dictate the hair styles of any citizens, unless it is a safety issue. I don’t care how long my students’ hair grows. As long as they can see where they are going, we should stay out of it. Let parents and students make this decision. Long hair, short hair, purple hair does not cause a disruption in my classroom and I don’t care about it. I am the last person you want to be making fashion decisions for anyone.
