Hair-rais­ing spec­ta­cle

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDI­TOR, Sir: MY TAKE on the Hope­field Prep hair con­tro­versy is that the par­ent is the one at­tempt­ing to make a state­ment on rights. Whose rights are be­ing vi­o­lated by the school? Hers or the child’s? She is will­ing to use her child as a pawn to prove a point in my view. That is abom­inable.

I don’t think hair length is the is­sue with the school; it’s the un­ruly ap­pear­ance of the hair. At least comb it, for Pete’s sake! ER­ROL SA­MUELS Tal­la­has­see, FL
