He's a distraction to learning!

Meanwhile, that bully stuffing the geek into the locker is just part of the learning experience.

This sort of rampant individuality makes the administration nervous.

FTA: "I'm weird, uncommon and socially unacceptable so why can't my hair express that too?" Moyer said. Moyer's mother, Rae, said she supports her son's goal.

Moyer's the principal, not the Mohawk-sporting teen. Journalism at its finest. Amusing, though.

Hair has nothing to do with learning. A boy with a mohawk can be just as smart as a poindexter with a 7/3 part.

Well, yeah. You think bullies don't exist in the real world? Learning to deal with them IS part of growing up. Not saying it's right, just saying that it exists and it's not something that we can simply eliminate. Like drugs, for example, or terror.

We let my now-16-year-old stepson get a mohawk when he was 6 (he requested this, we didn't just push it on him for world-record or any other purposes). He remains free to chose his own hairstyle, and he looks very neat. If you let kids get stuff out of their system when they need to, it generally won't become their obsession later in life.

/spent teenage years being forced to wear hair neatly, didn't get a haircut for the four years I was at university and wears pretty silly sideburns to this day

I'm more concerned about the precious snowflakes who go "waaaaaaaah, I can't learn anything because his hair is distracting me".*

If somebody's hair is going to distract you from learning you might as well drop out now and go work at McDonalds.

*oh wait, those were just hypothetical snowflakes made up by the principal.

Amazing writing in this article. The kid's last name is Stonesifer, and the principal's last name is Moyer. Now look at how many times they accidentally referred to the kid as Moyer.

"I was actually quite surprised. I can understand where they're coming from but its never caused a problem," Moyer told Local 6.

"I'm weird, uncommon and socially unacceptable so why can't my hair express that too?" Moyer said. Moyer's mother, Rae, said she supports her son's goal.


All these instances of Moyer should be replaced with Stonesifer...

This. I spent several years working as a union official, representing workers in disciplinary hearings in a range of industries. It's amazing how many people behave in the workplace like they used to at school, and are really surprised to learn that it's no longer acceptable, and they're well on their way to losing their job.

Physical and/or verbal bullying, groping, throwing stuff, stuffing around with machinery (I've heard countless tales of pretty well anything you can imagine on a forklift), breaches of privacy, smoking in smoke-free areas, lying, cheating and telling the boss what you really think about him.

I'm not surprised these things happen, but I was always surprised that they couldn't see what the consequences would be.

Yeah, we man up an learn to beat someone down like every geek who was picked on in high school I know or we cry havoc and let slip the Ks of 9 (cops) or we just continue to get victimized.

So in that way it's exactly like bully events in school, but it's not only the cool kids who'll fight back. And much like bullys in skool, you can Brer Rabbit your way outtamost incidents as an adult as well.
 
2012-09-28 01:50:26 AM  
Ah, that's crap.

When we REALLY wanted to piss off teachers we'd take acid. I remember running around German 1 biting my friend's ankles and moving his desk around like it was a race car. I don't know how I didn't get busted but we had put our German teacher through a lot of shiat before then.

Because she was so cool about it and other factors I ended up getting a minor in German. And there's a good chance I'll move there soon.

Frau Lough was pretty hot, too.

Just tie it back. No 'distraction,' problem solved.
 
2012-09-28 01:57:22 AM  
Which of the following is more of a distraction?

A. Weird hair on one kid.
B. Kicking that kid out of school and creating drama and mistrust between the faculty and the students.

He didn't get kicked out for being a distraction, he got kicked out for liking what others don't like.

It's a diversionary excuse. It's actually about control / conformity.

Much like pedo's being drawn to a place they can have access, so do power hungry idiots who want to rule but really can't manage in a more meaningful way.

Sure, there are good teachers and administration that are genuinely there for the betterment of kids, but really, they're a rarity.

It makes perfect sense to me. Moyer is a maverick principal. He has a wicked mohawk he's damned proud of, but his school has a strict "one mohawk per school" policy. Then this punk Stonesifer shows up, and he has a mohawk too, so Principal Moyer sends him home. Moyer called his elderly mother, who supported his "one mohawk per school" goal.

I miss dating high school girls with mohawks. It sucks that you only get to be 21 once.
 
2012-09-28 02:27:12 AM  
I had a mohawk when I was 21. I worked at a fast food place, so I had to wear their stupid hat when I was at work, so my boss never noticed, and I had a Sabres hat for around my parents. (I think I had a WBNY hat in the rotation, it may have been something else though.)

I had a teacher who didn't like it when I had it uncovered. Rather than go to the local news and whine, I wore a hat to class. He mentioned the hat, and I pointed out he asked if I could avoid having a mohawk in his class. I agreed that I would only wear Buffalo Sabres hats to his class from that day forward to avoid creating distractions.

This kid does seem reasonable, given that he seems to have realized that if it's not spiked the administration doesn't seem to care. That's not a bad deal, so why go to the news?

What kind of thought train is that? Seriously, what hat did that come out of? If the kid wants to express his "individuality or uniqueness", fine! Nights, weekends and summer are all his. What if I decided to express my "freedom" and just wore boxers to the office everyday.

If you truly believe the administration bans this for more control or mind set on a kid, I would have to say the parenting at home is way too weak. Raise your own kid. The administrators just might be doing this to keep your "different" kid from getting crammed into the locker room dryer by the bullies.

This guy is actually not being a douchebag about this. He disagrees with the rules, but he's willing to abide by them.

I'd have had you caned publicly and a log tied to your shoulders. Why? Because it's Tuesday and I'm a Victorian Era teacher! Mwa ha ha ha!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to put one of the smaller children in a basket and suspend him from the ceiling for a few hours because I said I like his answers and I can't show favorites.
