The Right to Freedom of Expression in Schools

My teenage daughter was today denied entrance to class because she had streaks of green in her hair. She will continue to be denied her right to (compulsory) education until she changes her hair colour to something more 'natural'. What right does a school or a board of trustees of conservative parents have to dictate to my child what she should look like? How is hair colour relevant to education? The teachers are there to educate my child not deny her right to freedom of expression. What harm is there in having different coloured hair? I was told it was part of the uniform. I'm sorry, but colour of skin, eyes, hair, are not parts of a uniform. Schools are repressing individuality, creativity and self-expression by enforcing these ludicrous rules to ensure that all students conform to become mindless clones. Such irrational rules create a lack of respect for authority. Happy kids learn. Resentful kids don't want to go to school.

Every person, regardless of age, should have the right to freedom of expression at home and at school. Hair colour should not be a barrier to education.

Please support my fight against autocracy in schools.

    This is completely ridiculous, and Istronlgy disagree with this rule, as well as the overall principle of hair being a "part of uniform." As stated, children who are allowed to express themselves in ways that do not harm themselves or others, they are mor

    I have just changed my hair colour as well, and if my school has a problem with it, I feel that they shouldn't have the right to suspend me for doing so.
