Yeah, that’s right. On the first day of classes, the school system fumbled the ball with no time on the clock.
Hayleigh Black, 16, was sent home because of her hair color. The reason,…. it was distracting. According to a WAFF report the school had sent home 2 others with pink and orange hair. The system said it had to be consistent with school policy so Hayleigh was sent home too.
I understand we need rules and guidelines and such. But hair color? Even pink isn’t distracting to me. I’m thinking it is more distracting for school officals than the kids. Kids are used to hair styles, colors and the like. Hayleigh has had the same color for 3 years and it just became a problem today? That’s wrong Muscle Shoals. I’ll tell you what is distracting,… when I was in the fourth grade, a teacher had an arm cut off at the elbow. She didn’t hide it or cover it up in anyway, but to me, it was distracting. Did anyone complain? No. While I was in the 8th grade,… you know those puberty years, we had a science teacher that wore short skirts and low cut tops,…. for an 6th grade kid, that was about as distracting as it got. Again, did anyone complain? You’re kidding, right?
According to the WAFF website, Hayleigh will change her hair color to suit school officials. But I think they’re in the wrong. You can view the WAFF video here,… WAFF Report
