District 42 in Mars Hill Maine will not let a boy play on a basketball team because of his long hair , but yet the girls can wear theirs up in a pony tail. It is discrimination Mars Hill school system discriminates against boys with long hair and not let them play sports in their school. Fight discrimination maybe the girls should cut their hair too.
