Several students at Centennial High School have picked up on a trend to shave lines into their eyebrows. They say it's a fashion statement; school administrators, however, contend it's a gang sign.
Centennial administrators are telling students who shave the lines that they can't return to school until they take care of the problem — by shaving their eyebrows off. Four students have been sent home. One came back immediately with a bandage covering the shaved brow. The others are still out of school.
Assistant Principal Mark Porterfield said the students are not suspended, but they are not allowed in school until they cooperate.
And if one gang decides to grow their pinky fingernails an extra 1/4", are schools going to forbid that, too? What if a gang adopted an American flag logo? How far can, or should, schools go to keep gang identifications out of school?
