Educators preach student learning, achievement, and the importance of an education all the time (remember I am an educator as well, just in case you think this is teacher bashing article).
That being said, I always get very disappointed when I hear stories of students’ education being interrupted for nonsensical reasons; such as haircuts. See three examples of many:
This is not about race (although sometimes it is), this about priorities, and we sometimes place the wrong priority on students’ education.
If you do not like their haircut, fine, but do not take away their education because of that.
