    Kindergarten Student Sent Home for Star Haircut

    This young boy was suspended from kindergarten because he asked his dad to cut a star in his hair--- in support of his favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys.
    ----------

    With the Dallas Cowboys off to their best star in years, it's hard for fans to contain their excitement.

    Five-year-old Justin is no different. He's been wearing his Cowboys pride on his head for 10 days.

    "He said he wanted a star cut into his hair to represent the Cowboys and doesn't want to cut it until they lose a game," said the boy's step-father, Kenneth Wagner.

    Wagner admits it might have to be sooner than that. Justin's school administration doesn't like the haircut.

    "The principal told us that if we didn't shave the star off his head he'd be suspended from school," he said.

    Birdville ISD spokesman Mark Thomas said the district has a policy against hair styles and colors that disrupt the educational process. It is up to the principal to decide what's disruptive.

    "We have that policy and we follow that policy," Thomas said.

    Wagner has tried contacting Justin's principal at Richland Elementary School but hasn't been able to reach him.

    "I don't particularly care for the look of the haircut myself," he said. "He has the right to individuality and to present himself. I don't want the school to dictate that."

    Justin hasn't gone to school for the past few days. He was told to shave his head after being dropped off with the new style.

    He said he understands he'll probably lose his fight and will have show his pride in another way so that he can return to school. He knows he can't earn a gold star in school if he keeps the one on his head.

    "I'll do it," Justin said.

    What's the difference between that and wearing a t-shirt? It's his freaking hair. Would they suspend him for a mullet? A Mohawk? A flat top?

    Disrupts the education process? How?

    I swear people are dumb.

    rules are rules. I think this is just a show of attention mostly on behalf of the parents, not the child. As a teacher, I support the administration and the rules on hair and dress code. All parents sign this at the beginning of the year.

    What about an afro, dreadlocks, or a big ole' 80's poofy hairdo for a girl? Would those be considered disruptive? What if a girl did this? Would she have to shave her head? Wouldn't that be disruptive? A bald girl?

    My gosh.

    The boy's father said he's not fond of the hairdo, but his child has a right to express himself. I think the schools go too far. Some individuality is a good thing.

    Well your job can tell you to maintain a certain professionalism because you can get fired. A public school on the other hand cannot tell their students to take showers or shave regularly and they definitely shouldn't tell them what haircut to have. The kid is in kindergarten, a shiny piece of foil is distracting to these kids. Or maybe the principal is just scared the kids in a gang and hes showing of his gang related symbols.

    That is funny how they think, all of a sudden other kids won't be able to learn because of this haircut. Its not like its a different color or even on the side/back of his head where its even more noticeable.

    Besides, the only education that is being disrupted is this kids'. And its because he is suspended.

    I will just pass this one onto the drudge report. If it gets put up on drudge, the school district will have fun with that one.

    What city was this in? Dallas, or elsewhere in TX?

    I know here in Utah I see kindergarden kids with colored hair, blue or purple mostly, and even some mohawks!

    what a shame what the school system is doing. let him be, he is not offending the majority of the other students nor disrupting their studies. so what, when a student wears a religious or cultural clothes they will be suspended for being disruptive?
