    How did educrats take in loco parentis to mean that they got to make the decisions about kids’ appearance? Hair, tattoos, piercings. Aren’t these decisions that the parents should make?

    A Henry County student’s battle with the school system over its body piercing policy will continue next week.

    Daniel “Corey” Rager, 15, is expected to complete the rest of his three-day in-school suspension and could immediately begin another five-day stint if he continues to wear the piercings.

    …His fight with the 32,000-student district has attracted national media attention and put the spotlight on the system’s zero-tolerance rules.

    What is the rationale for this zero tolerance idiocy? This is a power play, pure and simple.

    ITA! Good grief- piercings should be the focus of education. Wonder how many dollars are being wasted on this one?

    Since when does body piercing and hair length affect student learning and achievement?
