To Stay or Not to Stay: The Controversial No Nit Policy

TheNo Nitpolicy, which is practiced in some schools but not others, is about excluding children from school if they're found to have nits, and not readmitting them until they are declared nit-free. There are many problems and much confusion associated with this policy, and advocates for each side make a compelling case.
 
Children with nits may not be in school (the "pro" side):
When a school nurse, parent, professional checker or pediatrician does a quick, dry check, and proclaims a child to have just live bugs but no nits, or just nits but no bugs, it's so very frequently not the true case.
