Mother of 7-Year-Old with Down Syndrome Furious When Teacher Cuts Her Hair in Class

Teacher Cuts Girls Hair Without Permission

There are certain things a teacher should not have rights to do with their students: they should not be able to abuse them, insult them, and they shouldn’t be able to cut a child’s hair without parental consent. But the latter happened to 7-year-old girl with Down syndrome.

Last week at Millbridge Elementary School in Rowan County, North Carolina, the young girl’s teacher reportedly cut about eight inches of her hair off. The reason was apparently “because she got food in it,” or that she would “not quit taking her hair down this morning” depending on what version of the story the school told the parents. But the thing is…the teacher gave the impromptu haircut without parental consent.  The teacher had called the family to say that she had trimmed about four inches but, “it was more [like] 8 inches,” her mother Jessica Stirewalp said. “And when she walked in the house, you could tell that she thought she was in trouble. I mean, it hurts my feelings, and I know it hurts her feelings.”

And the damage seems be lasting. The young girl had been proud of her long locks. “She would look at it and she would say, ‘Pretty.’ She doesn’t even get in front of the mirror anymore,” her grandmother, Mary Poole, said.

The family is furious and reached out to their local news station to express their anger about the situation, which is now getting national attention.

What would you do if a teacher cut your kid’s hair without your permission?
