When people take the time to worry about these little things and fail to worry about the big things, then you know our country is not destined for greatness.
From Alabama comes this little item about a principal being pro-education...
A six-year-old Alabama student is facing suspension over his haircut. But the boy's mom says the haircut is a flattop and son's hair has been styled like that for a long time.
"The haircut that my little boy's got is like a flat top," she told Hunstville station WAFF. "It's high and tight, it's like a military haircut."
Fyffe School principal Ricky Bryant says the boy's haircut is considered a mohawk and is distracting to other students. Bryant said it's a dress code violation and the boy will be suspended if he shows up to school with the haircut Monday.
"If it's anything that is distracting to the educational environment, we can deem that unacceptable," Bryant told WAFF.
State Schools Superintendent Kathy Cox put out a news release Monday on some sobering news for Georgia students.
...according to a news release 40 percent of eighth-grade students in Georgia did not pass the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) in math.
The numbers are even worse when it comes to sixth and seventh-grade social studies. Preliminary reports put the pass rate on those two exams at 20-30 percent.
