Do you think that hair length regulations are necessary?

I've heard that some schools in U.S. do have those regulations, but mostly not. However in Korea, where I'm in, most of middle schools do have hair regulations, and the rules are really strict. In my school, for example, girls can let their hair grow till it's not more than 12cm below the ear. Plus, they give us minus points when we don't make our hair like what they told us to do. The only reason they do this is because they think that our hair length will affect our grades. Do you think that it's a good idea Please give me some opinion about the regulations.

    Apr 9 2013: this is as stupid as it sounds. it serves no other purpose than "teaching" kids to obey arbitrary rules set by society, regardless of the merits of said rules. nothing good comes out of it.
