    And to those of you saying "well if it's too big, no one can see! And you can't switch seats because I'm assuming that someone in the class has a vision issue even though I've never seen this school!" They can either rotate seats, put them Socratic Seminar style (which I almost always had in high school), or, as crazy as this sounds, the black girl can wear her hair in a ponytail 😱; yes, we black people can do that. Amazing, I know.

    I got turned down for 2 jobs because I had to have my hair in braids (it was too short (I have 4c hair) and getting matted because I couldn't do any styling. It was LITERALLY that short. It would dry matted to my head. It grew 1 1/2" in two months 😊) and they thought it was too unprofessional.

    Even in our schools here in Alabama our only hair policy is no extreme colors outside the "normal" hair color spectrum. But style as far as I know has never been an issue yet.

    Okay I don't see why they need the beads they rattle pretty noisily and I could see that as a distraction for kids, but braids in general, that is just silly.

    At lease the hair was natural color. Some single braids are colors, that policy deff has to go.

    Omg! I don't care who you are. If you lay hands on my child to physically cut his/her hair without my permission, I would press charges for assault. I didn't even have to finish the video to know this is wrong. 😡😡 The audacity of some people!!

    I swear, if a teacher cut my hair off for playing with it, i am slapping that bitch, and the fact that if someone like me did that we would be let off with a warning for slapping a teacher, but if a black woman or gentleman did the same, they would be in jail in 2 seconds.
