MOWHAWK UPDATE!!!!


here is a MOWHAWK update. i went to pick up kade from school yesterday and all the teachers had a sad look on their faces. the front office... the administration building... the people who write the rules and try to hold the little people down.. told the teachers to inform me that mowhawks are not allowed and kade would have to cut his hair. i went to the front office and asked for the written account of no mowhawks but they just spun their words and made up some crazy story. so we cut the mowhawk off and now he is just another pelon runnin the streets of alhambra. lol. the little people were brought down again... a sad day at kades school in alhambra. we will regroup and survive.

fight the power! can you petition other parents into getting the administrators to change the rules. it wouldn't change things for Kade, but maybe Evan still could sport one next year.

I guess they're not trying to promote rebellion. go figure... a school trying to keep order.. that'd be a first.

Ok, I'll be the bad guy. Hey, it's a private school. I feel bad for Kade. But rules are rules and they have a right to say what they are. Also, I can see how some parents would not want that to take place in their kids school (you are not the only one paying for their kids education). While this may be allowed in the public sector, I find that parents tend to place their kids in private shools specifically for this reason, because the public school loses control of things. What if a parent decided to let their little girl dress very tasteless and provocatively (And trust me I've seen that happen even t the pre-school level)? There needs to be what there is not in public schools...order.

You can always protest by not placing your kid there. otherwise, conform. (I know a lot of people hate that word). At least he's getting a better eduction than the rest of the public school kids. Mohawk or no.

I spelled education wrong...maybe I should enroll in Kade's school.

LOL!

hey john, when i was at bosco, they ammended the dress code to include no shaved heads specifically for me. $10 says that if you go after the issue, you'll get a new updated copy of the rules next year with hair restrictions.

on the other hand, you pay tuition. you have a say in the affairs of the school. but then again, so do the rest of the parents who give their kids bowl cuts. :)

Hey John. I'm a loyal J-lou Confu reader, leaving their first time comment. I must say this story really hit close to home. My time at Emmaus was quite similar to Kade's; never being allowed to have great hair. When I was a child I wanted hair like Charlie Sheen in the flick "Major League". I'm sorry that "the man" seems to keep pulling down the little people. When he's older he'll be able to sport the hawk. The "MAN" can't do anything when Kade can fight back! I'll keep rocking my mohawk for those who have fallen along the way. Keep on writing. I'll keep on reading.

Your Hero,
Paul G. Camargo

paul, remember when Johnathan Johnson got suspended for dying his hair blue with kool-aid (did I spell that right?)
anyways, it was lame...

I was going to suggest coloring it but...school rules are rules I guess.

It would have been fun to see though.
