Andrew Jones was top of his class and scheduled to deliver a commencement address, but he had a beard. He had been told on more than one occasion that he would have to shave the beard according to school policy. He refused and he was denied the opportunity to speak or march. He challenged the rule. Some are saying the school is at fault, but what do you think? Are rules made to be broken? Share your thoughts.
