Punishment/suspension/for doing something "good"/

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/cancer-survivor-suspended-high-school-long-hair-growing-locks-love-article-1.1013181?localLinksEnabled=false

Excerpt-please read full article

A high school cancer survivor was kicked out of school for his long hair, which says he was growing to donate to other sick kids.
Seems "doing something good" for the benefit of others, can even land up in suspension from school. What has happened to compassion and mercy for others?? This child should be commended for his good and caring heart, NOT punished for doing good things. School policies should certainly be amended, he is NOT hurting anymore, and does NOT affect anyone, does NOT interfere with anyone else, so sadly children are forced to endure such a cold, cruel world. What will be their mental state when becoming an adult???
