I think his hair is stupid. I think it is distracting. But is it bad enough to ban the kid from school? no. let him be a novelty for awhile. it's not dangerous or illegal. Eventually the community will let the issue rest. The more attention this brings the more the principal will dig in his heels and then it won't be about his hair but about the principal saving face.

It depends on what the dress code states. Personally, I think the novelty would wear off in a day or two. If another student is so distracted by Stonesifer's hair, then the teachers can discipline them to pay more attention.

It seems to me it is the job of kids to have hair styles or wear clothes in a manner which ticks off parents and school administrators. (Boys with long hair in 60's, pants worn half way down, etc.)

If a particular style upsets the parents or administrators, then you can be sure others will follow!

I would not say a word!

So it appears from the article that his hair breaks an unwritten rule in the school dress code, to be decided at the principal's discretion. FWIW, I think the school should probably think about making it a written rule in the dress code if they want to go to the mat over it. Either way, this strikes me as another tempest in a tea pot story.

Try these links. The ABC one does not work for me.

Student suspended for 'extreme' hair-do - FOX 35 News Orlando

Florida Teen's Extreme Mohawk Stirs Trouble at School | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo!

They compromised on having him wear it down, but not having to cut it.

Is his hair a distraction in the classroom?

Probably. For the first 10 or so minutes after he's walked in and taken his seat. If a fellow student is distracted by his hair after that he/she is probably also distracted by 100 other things. (Though I can see where hair that height can block the view of the kids sitting in back.)
