Your first link explains in the abstract: So far there has not been strong empirical support. There's many other variables affecting crime, and the few cases where you can show that crime rates drop, you can equally find cases where crime rates do not drop.
And I'll raise you here (external - login to view), and here (external - login to view).
More than that, I'll ask you to provide a reputable source that identifies long hair past the ears in pre-kindergartners as disorder, and affecting crime rates.
The links in post #41 link to more recent research than the links in this post.
So, according to you, it's okay for a school to discriminate on the basis of gender.
You are doing it again. No I am not. I am saying if the school has rules they should be followed. I repeat: The parents had to know what the rules were going in and we are talking about pre-school. Parents take their kids to pre-school anywhere. They do not have to stay in the boundaries of a catchment area.
And a hell of a big boat too! OK, you win - some of those Biblical guys had long hair. But, they also had long flowing robes and an entirely different "dress code of the day" so I'm wondering if it's fair to compare "apples and oranges" (or maybe it's figs and dates) here!
lol I'm just pointing out that length of hair has nothing to do with religion, as far as looks are concerned, those grossly obese backsides in the school have no reasonable grounds for whining about length of hair of the kids, and that they take themselves entirely too seriously. It makes me wonder if they teach "intelligent design" in their "science" classes, too. lol
Good point! Speaking of "early influences", I often like to tell people why I can type 50+ words per minute these days...when I was in high school, one of the electives I chose was typing! Why? Wellll...it was because the typing teacher was a real fox! (About a 15 on a scale of 1 - 10)
My buddies and I ended up being some of the best typists around, as we always requested extra 'assistance.' Now that was a positive influence on my education!
Awesome! I'm in the 40s myself but I was taught a little by the sweetest, little French (real French) lady ever. She was also the French teacher (go figure ). My grade 2 teacher fascinated me, though. She was the first redhead I ever saw and she was a fox, too. Major crush. At least till she wouldn't let me go pee and made me sit there until the dam burst and the crush died right then and there. Whatta biatch!
You appear to be directing your comment at me. Maybe try reading some of the other posts and see what fat asses have to do with any of this or what kids in or outside of kindergarten have to do with it in other posts and all the other stuff being talked about. If you don't like a post off topic - draw it back to the topic with a comment that is on topic.
Kind of. If I had the inkling of a nasty bone in me at the time I would have filled her winter boots with pee. lol
