Legally 1969 the US Supreme court ruled that a student or teachers right to freedom of speech does not end at the school house door, Why are the Taxpayers there paying for School Leadership that is ignorant of the law and setting the Taxpayers up for a lost lawsuit.I have a copy of the ruling and her parents can have it anytime they want

It's not a ditraction. it's how she wants her hair to be. She should still be allowed to go to school. And if they aren't ok with the way her hair is and the way her parents let her live then all of the older teachers with gray hair or differnet colored hair should have to dye their hair back too.

The article also illustrates the recent congressional concern: "'It's not just radiation we're talking
about,' says Democratic Sen. John Glenn of Ohio, a former Marine and astronaut who is holding
hearings on the subject this week.'Any place government experimenting caused a problem we should
make every effort to notify the people and follow up. We ought to set up some sort of review and
compensation for people who were really hurt'." Years later, on January 22, 1997, Sen. Glenn introduced
before Congress the Human Research Subject Protections Act of 1997. It was referred to the Senate
Committee on Labor and Human Resources, chaired by Sen. Arlen Spector (author of the Warren
Commission's 'single bullet theory'), and never made it out. With the many bare-brained pieces of
legislation that make it to the Senate floor, you would think that one which attempts to safeguard human
subjects of experimentation would be a 'no-brainer,' but apparently it is not with this Congress.
Parallel with this activity, President Clinton published an Administrative Order known as
Memorandum of March 27, 1997 entitled "Strengthened Protections for Human Subjects of Classified
Research" (see appendix), which attempted to implement the recommendations of the Advisory
Committee on Human Radiation Experiments, which he established in January 1994. To date, these
well-intended efforts have had little or no impact.
Last year (April 15, 1998), Harlan Girard, on behalf of the International Committee for the
Convention Against Offensive Microwave Weapons, brought suit against the Federal government for its
non-compliance in carrying out President Clinton's Administrative Order. This case is still in the process
of working its way through the Federal courts. The U.S. News & World Report article concludes with the
following paragraph:
"Another former CIA official, Sidney Gottlieb, who directed the MKULTRA behavior-control
program almost from its inception, refused to discuss his work when US. News reporter visited him last
week at his home. He said the CIA was only trying to encourage basic work in behavior science. But he
added that after his retirement in 1973, he went back to school, practiced for 19 years as a speech
pathologist and now works with AIDS and cancer patients at a hospice. He said he has devoted the years
since he left the CIA 'trying to get on the side of the angels instead of the devils'."
