It seems that everyone and their mamas have an opinion about a photo that recently went viral. A teacher recently took to the Internet to share a before and after photo of one of her students. According to the teacher, she took initiative and styled the student’s hair after her parents sent her to school with a “tangled” mane. Her post reads:
“So one of my students came to school today with her hair full of knots, lint, 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!”
Of course, many criticized the teacher for not only touching the child’s hair, but attempting to get attention for the deed by posting a photo on social media. However, some felt that it was a very kind and loving gesture that she certainly didn’t have to do.
What do you think? Was this teacher wrong or are people simply looking for something to fuss about?
