This child was put in ISS in Belton Middle School in Belton, South Carolina because she dyes the tips of her hair pink and will be in ISS until it grows out! The reason she did this is because her grandmother died from Breast Cancer and I (her foster grandmother) survived breast cancer. This is her way of showing her support for Breast Cancer awareness month. She loved her grandmother very much she was her best friend. It is sad how these "rules" are applied to some children and not others. She is not a bad student, she is on the honor roll. I believe that this is an honorable thing this child of 12 has done and now for her to return to her class she has to either dye her hair back to a "normal" color or cut her hair or wear it in a bun. Please support her she is a wonderful child who misses her grandmother so much.
