    The school is called "Barbers Hill Kindergarten Center." Is it any surprise they might not cotton to kids having long hair? LOL

    A 4 year-old is attending Pre-K. That is not "school".

    They can take it up with the school board that made the rules.

    Also, this story is a month old.

    From the article:
    "The school policy states that boys must have a haircut above the eyes, ears and neck and that a parent or guardian must provide a letter citing "religious or cultural exception."
    Why is this even a news story? Are the boys parents illiterate, thus unable to write a letter indicating the cultural or religious reason their child has long hair.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    We are writing to inform you that our cultural traditions stipulate that young boys not cut their hair.

    Thank you for your understanding of cultural diversity.

    Sincerely,
    Jessica Oates.​

    Problem solved.

    As for the school, well, I've long said that schools should stay out of hair and fashion related matters. So long as students show up clean and clothed, what they look like with their hair dos and hair don'ts and fashion faux pas really isn't the school's business.

    Thats a cute girl. However, parents might consider more feminine attire.

    I'm tying to be sympathetic, but they are making hard.
