On May 23, VANGUARD informed him that in Saint Peter, Coahuilathe educational institution conalep of said municipality denied entry to a group of students for carrying a Featherweight haircutarguing that the students had already been warned to take advantage of the weekend to get a natural haircut.
The students said they were only told about the uniform, which they said they were wearing in full, but never received a warning about hair. This situation caused divided opinions, since the students protested that their hair style is not an impediment to study, while others supported the decision of the campus.
In this case, several comments in the publication made by VANGUARDIA were in favor of these measures, considering that it was a matter of following the rules and discipline.
“Well done, it’s nice that the school stands firm with the regulation of discipline in personal hygieneand let’s not forget that the hygiene, education and values they come from home, the students are a reflection of their home, with their appearance and manners we realize what kind of parents they have”.
“Well, it is a rule of educational institutions that all students must respect and we as parents support the institution on that side, good for that school.”
“Very well, in daily coexistence in all areas of life you have to follow rules, at home, on the street, when you play a sport, at school and more at this stage that they are forming; They will have the opportunity to cut their hair as they like on vacation”the netizens expressed.

Some considered that education comes from home and that it is the parents who should “put a stop” young people to learn to follow the rules
“What happens is that today’s young people want to set their rules and if the school allows it authority has been lostin a school there must be a regulation that parents and students must abide by ”.
“They continue without teaching them from home that they should know when, how, where and with whom they say, look and do things. Everybody says ‘not with the kids’, but they are permissive and this is one of the results. If educating were a matter of families, we would not be as we are, we would be a better off country, families are not educating. Make no mistake that schools instruct and teach, education is from home and your close circle.
“It is the lack of education, of moral principles. Training at school is that and that is what it is about following rules and regulations within, not just a school, in any company, factory or business there are rules and regulations and they must be followed”.
“More unfortunately, the majority of parents want their children to live without regulations… And that results in mediocrity, in the human being… Always imitating prototypes that have nothing to do with it!”
“Well done, this is how education should be everywhere. First they start with the hair, then the clothes, then the tattoos come and the drill begins at school and home … And then some of them with drugs, I’m not saying all of them, but many don’t end well… Good for that school that is doing the work that parents lack at home”they commented.

Others mentioned dislike for the type of cut, which is called mulletwhich is characterized by being short on the front and sides to give way to long hair behind the head.
“Excellent is school disciplineto make fools of yourself with ugly cuts and dye your hair when you are so young, wait for vacations and go to work in a circus, Discipline is discipline!
“They would have been sheared like we were in the Gabino in my time”
“I mean, they have bad taste and, on top of that, they leave them without classes. Poor”.
“Clowns without identity… not a pure copy, they are identical”
“Well, that’s good, because the only thing they seem to be is stupid for not telling them more because they call my attention for putting bad words, they look sooo ridiculous”they expressed.
However, although few, there were those who took a position in favor of the students, reinforcing the argument that the free development of personality and physical appearance does not interfere with the learning process.
“Pure bullshit. You can’t force that on young people. You have to process an amparo or some legal resource against that school.
Clothing or haircut cannot limit your constitutional right to education. Neither to me nor to my son, no government or school is going to dictate how his appearance should be… Enough!”said a user visibly annoyed.

Even, in a comment where a mother of a family expressed that she did not think the resolution of the campus formed a debate, where many argued that it wasn’t a matter of taste, it was a matter of discipline, and even hygiene.
“Children and young people who study share many hours in closed spaces, having long hair or not tied up is a risk. risk of pediculosis (lice) infestationit is also part of a civic education, wearing your polished shoes, clean tennis shoes, clean uniform or in good condition, is part of your training.
Besides, I don’t know if I already listen to the songs composed and sung by Featherweight? They make an apology for drug traffickingthey exalt drug traffickers, and they sell Drugs to children and Youth how the fentanyl. Today they die in USES more than 100,000 people each year because of drugs and in Mexico is no exception…”
While the mother continued with her position that, although she agreed with following the rules, she reaffirmed that physical appearance does not interfere with the learning of minors.
WHAT DOES CONAPRED SAY ABOUT IT?
In August 2022, on the occasion of the return to school, the CONAPRED issued a statement in which it urged educational institutions to respect the right to the free development of the personality of girls, boys and young people. This included dyeing or length of hair.
Well, at least in the period from January 3 to August 15 in 2022, 487 girls and boys were discriminated against due to their physical appearance during the return to school in person.

In said statement, CONAPRED explained that during virtual classes at the COVID-19 pandemic “they decided to let their hair grow or dye it a different color, therefore, with the return to face-to-face classes, there have been restrictions on their rights, motivated by their physical appearance”.
With these guidelines, as of 2022, parents and minors obtained permission for students to enter the campus with long or dyed hair.
Likewise, days after its publication, Patricia Yeverino Mayola, holder of the Directorate to Promote Equality and Prevent Discrimination in Coahuilain an interview with VANGUARDIA pointed out that educational institutions must allow the free development of the personality of the students.
“There is an important controversy that obeys our historical construction, that we have been taught what is correct and what is incorrect, but leaving this framework of what is correct, what is incorrect, my exercise of the right to education has nothing to do with my physical expression, nor with identity and gender, nor with my race, nor with my sex, nor with how I identify myself.
“My hair color does not limit my ability to learn, nor should it be, as it is an impediment to the free exercise of my right to education”pointed out the headline.
If the student suffered any type of discriminatory practices, they can report to the National Council to Prevent Discrimination (CONAPRED) through the telephones 52 72 1490 or 800 543 0033as well as to email [email protected].
