This type of suppression of individuality and discrimination needs to stop!

A month ago we decided to finally cave in and allow Cheyenne (my daughter) to have some purple in her hair. She has been asking like forever and we finally decided she was old enough to start making some of her own decisions regarding how she looks.

HOWEVER literally about a month later I get this garbage from the school. This policy was last updated in 2008!!! Not only is it way out of date, the second offense is detention and the third offense is out of school suspension!!!

Tell me what world 2019 almost 2020 is if it is okay for our doctors and lawyers to have sleeves of tattoos and piercings BUT AN 11 YEAR OLD CHILD IS PENALIZED FOR HAVING SOME COLOR IN THEIR HAIR?!?!

Minersville area school district needs to get with the times and update this damn policy. They can’t even wear jeans! How dare they bring disciplinary action against a good kid just trying to show some individuality!

When I called the principal all she had to say was “that is the districts policy” and that my daughter WHO HAS NEVER EVEN BEEN IN TROUBLE will be "excluded from school"!

When I called the superintendent the secretary just kept repeating “those are the policies and we don’t have to change them” and that if the principal says she will be excluded from school then that is what will happen! She also said my daughter would not be allowed in “general population”. She referred to school as if it were a prison!

THEY'RE NOT ALLOWING MY CHILD TO GET AN EDUCATION BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF SOME OF HER HAIR! 

 

This is beyond disgraceful and Minersville Area School District should be ashamed of themselves for putting an outdated policy above a childs education!
