|This month's Teaching
Point comes from one of this month's new lessons, the
Elementary Instant Lesson, 'Welcome Back'
grade student with pink hair can now go back to school.
The school told the girl to stay at home because of her
pink hair, but now she can go back to school.
The girl's parents were happy when the 12-year-old
girl improved her grades at Shue-Medill Middle School in
Newark, Delaware. She told her parents she wanted pink
hair. Her father helped her dye her hair. When the girl
went to school the next day, the school told her to go
home because of her hair. She missed 3 days of school.
School rules say hair colour should be "a natural color,
brown, blond, black, natural red/auburn."
The American Civl Liberties Union (ACLU) talked to
the school and now the girl can go back to school.
