Colorado girl shaves head for pal with cancer, gets temporarily suspended

Why on earth would this be an issue for the school to have made? It was a nice gesture, there's nothing inherently wrong with the cut, etc. Do they also prevent boys from having shaved heads? And when did it get to be that schools were in the business of creating more and more restrictive rules, sometimes with no legitimate basis, rather than educating children? Seems to me they're teaching kids with this policy that they'd just better conform, even it if it means not showing someone else you care. And they wonder why bullying is getting so bad. If you're different, others learn to close ranks, and enforce the need to conform, often with the result being the person that is different is at fault.
