Patrick Gonzalez, Middle School Student, Faces Suspension For Matt Bonner Haircut:

Patrick Gonzalez, a student at Woodlake Hills Middle School in San Antonio, Texas, is facing a possible suspension after coming to school with the likeness of his favorite basketball player, Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs, shaved into his hair, KABB-TV reports.


Rose Gonzalez, the boy's mother, told the station she was shocked by the school's reaction and claimed she got permission for the hairstyle, something district official Aubrey Chancellor refutes.


"There was no permission that was given," Chancellor told KABB-TV. "If the parent thought that, then it was a miscommunication."


Patrick was sent home after the haircut was deemed a violation of the school dress code and will receive in-school suspension if he does not remove the tribute, according to WOAI-TV.


According to Concord Patch, Gonzalez plans to have the image shaved off so that he can return to school.

Why the hell would he get suspended for that? Is it because he's a ginger?

It wasn't hard to find their dress code online...

Hair:
• Must be neat, clean and well groomed.
• No type of head covering, cap or hat, hair rollers or long-handled combs may be worn inside the building.
• Sideburns must be kept neatly trimmed and must not extend below ear level or flare at the bottom.
• Symbols and/or styles which are identified with gang membership, affiliation or representation shall not be allowed.
• Extreme hairstyles and/or coloring cannot be a distraction to the educational process.
• Notched eyebrows are prohibited.

I would think this would qualify as a distraction.

Someone PLEASE give some props to that hairdresser.

Holy crap that's good.

Stupid dress code, and stupid parent/kid for ignoring the dress code.

End of story.

I image extreme would be something like a sideways Mohawk, or rainbow colored... something other kids could pick on. This hairstyle is not extreme just because it has an element that's not typical. How long can kids be distracted by a face in someone's hair?

Oh yes, that's such a distraction to one's education.

This is the façade of schools promoting individuality and confidence. They're really promoting their own dogmatic practice of groupthink weeding out individuals who act in ways a small group of people don't personally find appealing, which is counter to the concept of education. No person of reason is going to buy the distraction excuse.

That's the kind of cut you get in the summer, bro
It's also going to look terrible after about a week.

It's just the school being proactive against a slippery slope. Kids are brats and their stupid parents will go along with increasingly ridiculous haircuts until the learning is secondary to what haircut little Joey got yesterday.

Let them be their natural stupid selves then. All this forced institutionalized learning with all these excess rules is social engineering and hijacking kids from their parents anyways. Let the real cream rise to the top and the crap sink to the bottom.

You can lead a horse kid to water a classroom, but you can't make it him/her drink learn.

Smart move. A suspension over this is a small price to pay for the publicity. Inb4 he gets fee Spurs tickets out of this.
