Thanks for your really thorough and succinct coverage Barry. I learned this stuff the hard way last year. Since then I have been frustrated many times asking other parents to question the validity of the district's "no-nit" protocol. Besides the many disadvantages you mention here, this policy also tends to create a finger-pointing, witch-hunt mentality among desperate parents - another reason why the school board should do the right thing and take a leadership role on the issue.
