A 9 year old girl from Colorado is recently back in school after previously getting removed by school officials for shaving her head. According to Fox News, Kamryn (the 9 year old girl) shaved her head for her friend, Delaney, who was suffering from neuroblastoma, and started chemotherapy. Caprock Academy in Grand Junction, however, claimed Kamryn had violated their dress code procedures, stating:

“[dress code] was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school’s students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted.” – Fox News

“I didn’t realize that hair was such an important aspect of a child at school,” Campbell said. “For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought that was a huge statement and it builds character in a child,”  – Delaney’s Mother

Shown above is another example of why schools need an immediate reformation. Kamryn was brave enough to shave her head so that her friend who is going through a tough battle with cancer could feel courageous. School officials, however, wanted to over look Kamryn’s brave display and cite their code of ethics to remove her from school. How many stories is it going to take to show that our current education system is plummeting?

P.O.S. commends your bravery Kamryn, you displayed a true sign of friendship and altruism.
