Teacher Braids Student's Hair Because it Was Knotted and Tangled
A picture has gone viral of a little girl who showed up to school after the holiday break with her hair looking tangled and full of lint. Her teacher took the initiative to clean and style the girl's hair. Once finished, she posted the before and after shots of the style on her Facebook page with a lengthy caption of her self-appointed good deed.
"So one of my students came to school today with her hair full of knots, lent, and ridiculously tangled. It looked like it hadn't been touched the entire holiday break...so my classroom became a salon. The photo on the left is before, and the right after. It just broke my heart so badly that I refused to let her leave school today the same way she came. When I finished she looked at herself and said "aww so pretty"...the beauty is that she is normally non-verbal. So now I'm crying lol. My day has been made!"
Facebook attacked her with an equal mixture of angry opinions and those who agreed with her selfless act.
UPDATE: According to many Facebook users, the teacher was given permission to do the child's hair by the parent's and to post the picture. The little girl has special needs and the parents have much difficulty doing her hair at home.
Vixens, now weigh in. If you were a teacher—or if you are one—would you have done the same?
