Passiert ist das ganze in Hertfordshire, England. Trauer pur, dort hat eine katholische Grundschule den Eltern des 11-jährigen Joe Head einen Brief geschrieben. Darin steht sinngemäß, dass der Sohnemann gerade einen Pferdeschwanz trägt und das garantiert macht, weil er drogenabhängig ist. Dabei tat er das nur, um seinem Idol Zlatan Ibrahimović nachzueifern. Wow, geht ja mal gar nicht.
A mother has branded her son’s primary school “ridiculous” after it linked his hairstyle to drug-taking.
Joe Head, 11, wore his hair in a short ponytail in tribute to Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovich.
But Pope Paul Catholic Primary in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, said in a letter the style was “unsuitable” and “associated with drug-taking”.
The school apologised for any upset caused and said would be happy to discuss the matter with Joe’s parents.
Mother Mandy Head said her son brought the letter home two days after he began wearing the ponytail.
In it, head teacher Helen Lines said she did not feel the style was suitable for school, and she was “given to believe [it] is associated with drug-taking”.
