A girl who’s pink-dyed hair violated school policy has been moved to another school district by her parents. Read about it in the Houston Chronicle.
Although there’s nothing inherently wrong in dressing goofy or having a tragically bad hair day, the fundamental purpose of school is education. To the extent that an individual’s preferences interferes with the ability of others to be safe and to learn, the cause of the disruption should be removed.
Of course, individuals will feel slighted at a restriction of their rights. Therefore, a standard, enforced system of school uniforms should be implemented in every district in the state. In this way, all parties will be treated the same. Everyone will be unhappy.
