Students’ hair continues to make grown-ups stupid.
She’s a seven-year-old African American child who had dreadlocks .
The school’s policy states
“hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”
Of the ones listed, the only one that I could consider “faddish” is the mohawk, since it seems to reappear for a short while every other generation.
Oddly enough, the last time I saw a mohawk, it was worn by the virtuoso guest pianist at a concert by the Virginia Beach Symphony.
I am skeptical that this policy is “colorblind.”
I am certain that it is stupid.
