I DON'T agree that the right to wear dreadlocks supersedes the need to conform to school uniform rules. Schools have dress rules and conformity for very good reasons: to create oneness in school.
If a prospective pupil or parent doesn't agree with the rules, go somewhere else. The school shouldn't have to change for you – what arrogance.
Eventually there'll be no rules or so many deviations that it will become pointless to have a code.
