Apparently, I'm last to find out that a slick spiked Mohawk will cost you an education.

 

Ethan Clos of Springfield, Ohio is getting national attention because his Grandmother wanted to give him a Mohawk, claiming that the hair style was 'similar to the other hair styles the school finds acceptable.' (Huffington Post)

 

No harm done, right?  I wouldn't think so. There's nothing wrong with being' too cool for school', believe me, I should know......................................................................................

 

Reid Elementary School disagrees with me.  The hair style is a violation of their school dress code.

 

Whether you agree/disagree with the school's policies, I personally feel that a simple call from the teacher to the parent would have been in order.  During this conversation, the teacher/principal explains the policies and gives the parent a 'warning'.

 

Instead, five year old Ethan Clos missed two days of class, returned with a bald head, and angry an Grandmother that went to the press.
