I was in the office of an elementary school the other day when the phone rang. It was a teacher calling to ask for help from the teacher specialist. Apparently one of her students was being defiant and refusing to remove his hat in the classroom.
The teacher specialist rolled her eyes and headed out the door. In only a few moments she returned. "He just got a buzz haircut yesterday," she informed us. "He didn't want anyone to see his hair."
"So what did you do?" asked another teacher.
"I asked to see his haircut, then told him he looked handsome. He wasn't defiant," she reported, "He was just embarrassed."
And what is the difference when a teacher can't get a student to remove his hat?
