If it's a public school, they can't do anything about your hair. They can enforce dress codes, but after that, they are not legally allowed to stop you from wearing your hair a certain way or having body piercings. They can only stop you from wearing things that can be harmful to other student. I used to wear one of those rings that covers your whole finger. They said it could be a hazard. I understood. But locks are not a hazard. You have a legal right to wear them proudly.

Thanks Eagle. That's a good paper. I'll remember that

It's not quite the same, but I worked at a whole foods that had issues with hair too. The boss actually said that when he was given the store, he could run it like it was his own business. He then proceeded to do so. A few girls with dyed hair were told to either dye it back to normal/ cover it up/ or find another job. I was told that if my hair got too long to fit under a hair net, I'd have to choose between my hair and my job. Long story short, I didn't let him stop me. I made a stink about it to corporate, and all of a sudden he started letting us wear a few different types of hats. One was a tam.

There are some times that you really can fight the system and they can't do anything to you. Don't give in. They can't suspend you for having locks. They can look down on you, but who cares what they think?

Moral of the story: don't work for whole foods. lol.

Omg. What school is this? And If I were you, I would just let it go. They wouldn't even know what was going on, to be honest. If they are that strict, then they probably don't know what dreadlocks look like when their formed naturally. They might just think your crazy or something.

Go for it.

same here except for thepiercings. My school was cool about most everything. I was the only kid in my school with a mohawk for the entire 4 years I was there. I had dyed hair, the works. I had my first set of locks in my senior year. The only dress code the tried to enforce was that we couldn't wear coats in school. they had to be in a locker. Funny thing was that everyone was scared of me in high school. I wore combat boots with spikes, all black, black nail polish and eyeliner, 00 gauge lobe, 12-10 gauges up the sides, my lip, and tongue pierced, purple mohawk, and a black leather trench coat. I never took my coat off even for gym. And I was never asked to. I don't know if it was a fear thing, cause by the time I was a senior, all the new freshmen were scared of me, but everyone, including the teachers stood up for me and said I'd never hurt a fly. They still never argued with me about the coat though.

Stand up for yourself. What are they really going to do? If they try to suspend you, you can have your parents come in and say that they want you in school. If your parents do that, they have to comply. Suspension is only successful because most parents don't contend it.

Just to be the devils advocate, I went to an american high school, and while I didnt have locks at the time, all of my friends did. While the school could do nothing about it, they could still make life pretty hard. They would always search us for cigarettes and drugs, and they told people in the police department to pull us over whenever they could.

I encourage you do get dreads because you have to be your own person regardless of what bullshit people throw at you, but just be aware of the consequences it will bring from a conservative system.

:-) I stopped getting high when I started to grow my locks. It's strange, I know, but I always wanted to get pulled over and annoy the cop by letting him search me and my car and find nothing. I'd accuse him of profiling and everything

problem with saying it religious, is that if they make a stink, you have to prove that you practice something that is a widely accepted religion. It took a long time for wicca to be recognized by the government as a real religion
