Haircut issue goes to court

Lucan Battison, a year 12 from St. Johns College has been suspended from school for having collar length, curly hair. The matter has been taken to court and Lucan has won the battle. The school stated that hair has to be, short, tidy, off the collar and out of the eyes. Lucan offered to tie his hair back but the school did not accept this. Lucan's family said that it was unlawful to have a rule like this and that Lucan was never breaking the rules anyway as his hair was not even past his collar. They have now resolved the problem and said that "business is as normal". I think that the school was really silly for making this big fuss over a small hair problem. I think this rule is invading human individuality and we should all choose what we look like as long as it's not too over the top.
