School is not a fashion hair show.   She can easily rock a natural style that isn't as distracting.  That's really what's up here.  She likes the attn so she poofs it up. 

And no my kid won't be moving his chair either to see over a 18 inch poof
LOL  Pick your battles wisely.  Fighting for the right to wear poofy hair is a waste of time and energy IMO.

Y'all didnt read. (or wont read, I'm not sure which)

She's been wearing her hair like this all year, and it only became a problem when her mother said kids were picking on her. This is a battle that definitely needs to be fought. Not only is the school attempting to punish her for speaking out, it's obvious that they've been looking for a reason to get her and her hair out of their school. They didnt say sh*t about styling. They didnt say sh*t about putting it in a ponytail or a bun. They said: Cut it off, straighten it, or find another school. 


I can read, and more importantly I can analyze what was written.  The article is based on what the mother said--cut or straighten.  The handbook clearly states distracting hair styles aren't permitted.  It doesn't say all persons need straight hair, or short hair.  It states no distracting styles.  So if she came to school w/ a bun or ponytail, logic dictates she wouldn't be so attn getting, and the school would probably be fine with that. 

I can basically poof mine to look just like her's or I can "tone it down" so that I can look polished and professional at work.  Natural hair isn't a wild beast that can't be "tamed" to  suit the situation. Smile

Logic dictates that if they wanted her to come with her hair in a bun or a ponytail, that's what they would have said. Logic also dictates that they would have told her this when she began the school year wearing her hair out and poofy. It doesnt seem like you're analyzing this situation.

It became a distraction when she began complaining about kids teasing her. They probably didn't care before but now that time has to be taken from "Teaching" to address the teasing they have to do something.

Also, we didn't hear the school say she had to cut it or straighten it. I'm 99% sure a ponytail or even braids would be acceptable. She can feel free to puff it up outside of school.

I don't think it's right that the school isn't addressing the kids that bully the little girl. Also, and people are going to get mad, I think her hair looks crazy Ermm.

Well, how people wear their hair is personal preference. "Polished" hair is subjective and whites have always tried to enforce upon others that their standard of beauty is the only way. There's people today who hate their own hair texture and think straightening agents are the only way and some who enjoy their natural hair. For many people their hair is a part of self esteem and morale.

That hooters girl with the blonde in her hair doesn't deserve prosecution anymore than this girl does. We're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Her hair is only an issue now because she wants acceptance and it's not "widely acceptable" to be natural. They probably couldn't wait to say something about her hair once the opportunity arose to hide it behind something else.

Because putting it in a bun is acknowledging that something is "wrong" with her hair and it needs to be tamed. 

Nobody says anything to those dog haired smelling white girls.
