"The young man was told today that he needs to change his hair style so that it meets the standard of the district dress code," a statement issued Thursday by Kerrville school district official Jamie Fails said. "We want him to return to school tomorrow. If his hair does not meet the district standard, he will be placed in an area of the school where he will not distract the learning of others."


I think this is dumb. Let the kid have the hair he wants. If another kid is distracted that is their fault. Hair is hair people. as long at is doesn't bother people by impairing vision (IE blocking view) or physically touching people (IE spikes poking people cuz they are aimed weird) I see no problem.

Its gotta suck having the last name Fails.

Meet the Fails' family. This is my wife Fails, these are my children Fails. Btw how do you like our Fails car. I just bought it with the raise I got from the good old Fails' job. I'm so proud to been born in the rich tradition of long line of Fails.

If he wants to have whatever hair he wants, then he should go to a school without a dress code. However, he's choosing to go to a school with a dress code and therefore needs to abide by it.

That said, what a weird thing to do -- you have another man's head on your head.

You realize hair grows back, right? Or he can shave it. It isn't a tattoo. Laughing

Must....hold back....on...joke.

But, seriously. I think it looks cool, I guess. It's amazing that they're able to do that. I thought I looked cool in Junior High when I had steps. Embarassed But, there is a dress code and you gotta follow the rules.

It's a public school, so not as much choice insofar as dress code is concerned.

However, it's important to note that Hill Country High School (where this kid goes) is an alternative school, which is pretty relevant to this type of discussion. School districts are typically much stricter with rules of this nature in alternative schools.

With that revelation in mind, this all seems like much ado about nothing.

It looks terrible. Can't blame the school for sending him home.

People really can't choose what school to go to. You really think people should be told what hair to have thru the first 13 out of 18 years of their life?

Then I can see that because kids there have problems anyways. Whether they be trouble makers or slow learning.

Conveniently, the piece ignores that part of it, too (instead playing up the "ridiculousness" of asking a kid to rethink his hairstyle). Guarantee you the story would grab nearly so many headlines if it were instead captioned, "Student at Alternative School Asked to Change Haircut".
