The 10 Dumbest Reasons Kids Got Suspended From School

10. “Cut That Hair Cancer Survivor”

Michigan teenager J.T. Gaskin had been through a lot: the young man is a leukemia survivor. When a good female friend of his was diagnosed with cancer, he felt strongly about growing his hair out. He set out to grow his hair into the 10-inch pony tail required by Locks of Love – a non-profit organization which donates hair to underprivileged children with cancer – for a donation in her honor. A noble cause, right? Unfortunately, the school suspended him when his hair was 2 inches below his collar, which is part of the school’s dress code for boys. Gaskin is a fighter. He said at the time we would continue growing his hair. This is one instance where the administration needed to bend (and maybe warm their cold hearts).
