This is so dumb. A kid decided to show his support for the Tampa Bay Rays by having his hair cut in a Mohawk. But apparently this was grounds for in-school suspension for him because the haircut was too distracting to other students, and “When students start commenting on it in class, it’s hard for teachers to calm them down,” according to a school official.
Oh please. what’s wrong with people that they can’t manage a goddamn classroom? We used to always have things that happened that distracted us. Somebody would bring in a squirt gun, or show off some hockey card they had. the teacher would notice the distraction, get the kid to stop doing whatever it was, and class would go on. Once the kids have seen the haircut, it’s not going to continue being distracting. Anybody with half a brain knows that.
School is so going to the dogs.
