When an elementary school girl decided to shave her head to support her friend dealing with a cancer diagnosis and treatment, her school reacted by suspending her. Because she lost her educational privileges for showing compassion for a friend in need, millions of people around the country banded together to tell the school to let her back. And because of the effort from people like you on Facebook and other forms of social media, the school listened. And now this girl has learned a valuable lesson in the power of love.

In a statement, the school said its dress code policy is clear.
"Caprock Academy does have a detailed dress code policy, which was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school's students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted," said Catherine Norton Breman, President and Chair of Caprock Academy Board of Directors.
