Stop the straightened-hair policy at King George V School.

This petition had 109 supporters

The English Schools Foundation (ESF) in Hong Kong has often prided itself on its academic excellence and inclusiveness. However, the new principal at King George V School, one of the oldest schools within ESF, is creating a policy for anyone with curly hair to straighten it. This is both physically and mentally harmful to the school's natural hair and black population, as it could permanently damage their hair and enforces the old stereotypes that having curly hair is unprofessional. Please help to put a stop to this policy and let people with curly hair have a say in how they present themselves.

Your body, your choice.
