People dying is the point

I READ this morning with utter shock of the disgusting actions of one of your local schools, namely the Milford Haven School. These actions should not go unchallenged, we are talking of morality here, not silly little school rules. I sent the following email to the school, I send it to you in the hope that appropriate action will be take, I will also contact the local authority.
This is my letter, my feeling, my life: “I just read with horror of the outrageous treatment of one of your pupils by your school.
“This young man shaved his head to raise money for the battle against cancer and you placed him in what can only be described as a completely unjustified solitary learning situation.
“My wife is a cancer patient and for me to see this story is so incredibly sad.
“The fact that Milford Haven School sees haircuts as more important than cancer beggars belief.
“I know you are saying it’s not about the haircut it’s about the rules, but here’s some insight for you, your rules are also less important than cancer, you may not like to hear that but it’s true.
“A young fellow shaving his head matters not a jot, people dying matters, if your school cannot or will not see the difference then God help our future generations because they will be as you make them. Shame on you all!”
