THE EDITOR, Sir:
My take on the Hopefield Prep hair controversy is that the parent is the one attempting to make a statement on rights. Whose rights are being violated by the school? Hers or the child's? She is willing to use her child as a pawn to prove a point in my view. That is abominable.
I don't think hair length is the issue with the school; it's the unruly appearance of the hair. At least comb it, for Pete's sake!
