See the Harvard School of Public Health Perspectives on lice. Thgere is a lot of great information there, and it specifically addresses no nit policies. One of the statements : "..(I)t is our professional opinion that the no-nits policies are imprudent, as they are based on hysteria and misinformation rather than on objective science"
I would like to hear opinions concerning "no-nit" policies. Are you for it or against it? Does your school have this policy? I'm running into problems explaining to teachers why I'm sending students back with residual or non-viable nits. To them, a nit is a nit!! Anyone else have this problem?
