    Boys shave their heads all the time, I don’t see what the problem is. Shame on the school for trying to dim this child’s light.

    The person that band her from school should be fired that person doesn’t have a heart and the only reason that she was let back in school is because o of all the attention from the media if it wasn’t for that she would still be banned from school and the person that did band her should be required to sshave there head and should also not to be able to work for that school or with kids if that would have been that person kid they would not have said anything about it
