: The little boy is of Native American heritage, and has never had his hair cut. School district at first said they would make an exception for cultural/religious reasons, which the mother was submitting paperwork for - but now they are disallowing her son to attend until he gets his hair cut. She's not giving in, and plans on fighting this. As usual, the school releases a statement full of the usual malarkey about 'standards' and what not. It's 2017, and we're still dealing with backwards mentality. School is in Texas, which seems to be in the forefront of boys-with-long-hair haters running schools.
I saw this item on the news. It's sad that after all these years this battle still rages on. Especially in 2017 where you have men growing their hair long, while you have women who often are going for shorter hair.
The school is in Texas which doesn't surprise me at all. I'm glad mom is sticking up for her son.
