How times change! Apparently there are other kids in his class with long hair, which isn't a problem.



Half of his contemporaries have the same haircut, so what's the school's problem?

Sorry, Airbus A346, but basically a furore has erupted over the decision of the principal of Tullamore College, Co Offaly, to exclude three students from the exam hall because of their blade-one cut.

Two students agreed to transfer to another school six miles away, but Enda Carroll (in pic) has refused, saying he is planning to stay at home for the rest of the exams and repeat the Junior Cert elsewhere next year.

Tullamore school principal is opening a special examination centre in Tullamore to cater for the students, but Enda has refused saying he wants to take the exams in his own school. His mother supports him fully and doesn't want him to be "treated like a leper".

What's wrong with his haircut?

The Headteacher at my school has clamped down on hair as well, she was even having a cry when people put red hair spray in their hair on red nose day.

It's insane at our school, the haircut polocy is so strict. One of my friends was put in "isolation" (Not being allowed to classes or lunch/break) for 3 weeks before his hair was the right length.

I've been told to have my hair cut a few times and it's only just been over my ears. It isn't rare to see people excluded for having too long or too short hair! It's pathetic!

It's somehow reassuring to know that we do not have a monopoly on assholes in this country.

The bad news is, they're all over the place and they are taking over.

Yes, but teachers are over 16, so can do whatever they like!

Does that particular hair cut mean something? In Rochester it doesn't mean anything to have short hair. Very few kids go to skin , but if they do it doesn't mean their skinheads or anything. It usually means they're swimmers. I'm just wondering why the school would have a problem with that particular haircut.

First off, is this a public school? Secondly, is there a specific dress code that addressed haircuts? If there is, I don't see a problem with it.

I keep my hair very short; low maintenance. Besides, I'm one of the few guys that looks pretty good with a shaved head.

What's the big friggin deal?  Yeah sure

My school seems to have a few screws loose too... it allows male students to wear hair as long as they want, but does not allow blade 1 or 2 haircuts because they look "thuggish". So, its OK to look like a hippie but don't wear your hair short?

Would someone from Ireland or the UK please tell me what's wrong with his hair? Is there some offensive pattern shaved into the back of his head that we're not seeing? His hair looks like that of 75% of the kids here.
