The colour I’m in

There’s a 17 year old who catches the same bus with me everyday.

She is a sweet girl who by all accounts I can tell doesn’t have many friends and struggles to fit into the “crowd”.

Recently she coloured her brown hair a shade into mahogany. It looked lovely and she appeared to be so much more confident. It was a natural look and didn’t look dyed unless you knew her.

Well. Today she turned up at the bus stop with her mahogany colour gone, stripped out and her hair the colour of recently stripped hair and quite straw like.

I asked her what the heck happened and she told me..

Her school had put her in isolation the past week and she wasn’t allowed to be in the classroom or amongst her peers unless she stripped her hair.

Basically bullying her into submission.

I’m pretty disgusted because Academy schools seem to get away with this BS yet their school mottos will be about respecting dignity and individuality blah blah blah.

What they do is in fact bully young people into submission and don’t respect individuality or uniqueness.

I feel for her because I know she struggles already with her confidence and she now has to walk around like this.

I asked her today to study how many teachers at the school dye their hair and cover their greys.

Then let’s question their behaviours via Ofsted and ask why teachers are allowed to do this and themselves aren’t excluded.

Normal schools value individual people and don’t bully. Normal schools don’t force young people into isolation to create an image.

  1. That’s really mean. It’s not as if she dyed it some outrageous colour or anything. And you’re quite right about the teachers dying their grey hair!

      1. Yes, I think that’s a good idea. The sort of bullying which destroys confidence – especially in young women – should not be tolerated in this day and age… we’ve had way too much of it.
