well, I have to say my kinky-twist are the same color, and I go to school everday not even worrying about what color they are, and I guess if the school asked me to transfer to another school because of my hair color after all the effort of finnishing the twists, then somebody gonna help me take it down or pay me the money I paid to get it done.

Not if you paid that money knowing full-well it was against the rules. Being told after you get it done is one thing. But these days schools send out letters well in advance of the school year saying what they will accept and what they will not. If you get that letter and then do it anyway, you're responsible for 'paying' to fix your own mistake, not them.

I dont think it matters what color youor hair is. How does a hair color distract from learning?

Obviously it does or this issue would be a non-issue. If it's enough of an issue and distraction that the media is covering some kid throwing a fit over their hair...then it's a distraction.

hair color may interupt a student from learning but if they were that worried about there school work they would forget about it and pay attention just becuase some kid comes in there with a bright green or blue or any other unnatural color isnt there fault that the other kids are to irrasponsible to pay attention to there own work.
