Principal Shaves Head After Student is Bullied for Being Bald – The Good News [VIDEO]
“I expect more from our students. I expect support and for us to be there for one another."
11-year-old Jackson decided that, because his grandfather is going through treatment for stage 4 lymphoma, he wanted to shave his head. It's a noble gesture...until his classmates started making fun of him.
His mom called Tim Hadley, the principal at Pekin Middle School in Iowa, and said that people were calling her son "baldy" and asking him if he had cancer. So, in response, Hadley decided to shave his own head.
He invited the staff down for a meeting and then called an impromptu assembly, where he handed Jackson a pair of clippers and allowed him to shave his head. And a staff member caught it on video.
Bullying starts at home, pure and simple. Let's teach our children to be better.
