No Hair, No Education

I just saw this on the news, about the little girl who — against her school’s dress code — shaved her head in solidarity with her best friend, currently battling cancer. The school board finally reversed its absurd suspension, details of which are linked below. Go Kamryn!!

  1. The fact that one member of the board voted against readmission even after learning of her reason for shaving her head demonstrates that empathy and humanism aren’t high on the school’s priority. Shame! Thanks for sharing this. 🙂

    1. Right? Conformist standards could use a little more compassion. I would not be surprised if a boy in her position would’ve faced less punishment simply because long hair is expected on little girls. Glad you enjoyed the read!
