Parents and schools have been considering removing the “No Nit Policy” because it forces kids infested with lice to stay out of school even though lice don’t do any real harm. In fact some schools have already removed the policy so kids don’t miss out on their classes unnecessarily. The removal of the “No Nit Policy” may look good on paper but it doesn’t do the school any favors.
While most parents are disturbed by the idea of their kids hosting parasites on their heads, some simply do not care. There are an overwhelming number of parents in the country that feel that it alright to let lice be.
Lice may not carry diseases but there are dangers to not removing them from your child’s head:
Removing the “No Nit Policy” may stop children from missing school but it can also lead to an infestation of the entire class. As some point, the lice will become a distraction for both the students and teachers.
