Little Girl Shaves Head in Act of Solidarity and Gets Kicked Out of School

As a gesture of solidarity, a little girl from Grand Junction shaved her head for her friend who has cancer, 11-year-old Delaney Clements. What happened next: she got kicked out of school because it ‘violated the dress code policy’.
What a load of shit. As if a hairstyle defines a person, as if it is ‘less’ than having hair on your head. It is not going to make her dumber or cause the school to set fire. In fact it is probably showing the strenght of her character. A school should praise this, not punish it. I guess they are more focussed on their students to fit in an follow their little rules, than encouraging positive characteristics in people which not necessarily fit in their school policy.
“It felt like the right thing to do,” Kamryn Renfro said.
Delaney loved what her friend did.
“It made me feel very special and that I’m not alone,” she said.
That school is way too fixed on their set rules, creating a very strict and limiting environment. If you violate a rule then your kicked out, and no one even looks at the starting point. The rule is the law without exceptions. And this is very dangerous because people have various motives for doing what they do. And what this girl did should not be punished.
“Kamryn’s mother tells 9NEWS that the school headmaster told her Kamryn will be allowed to return to school Tuesday.The school’s board of directors plans to meet Tuesday evening to discuss this situation and the policy.”

Good! real good.
If not, that principal should be fired and the policy re-written.
